A Danish-backed offshore wind farm has been awarded a contract to power 500,000 homes in Massachusetts. Called Vineyard Wind, the wind farm will be located off the southern coast of Martha’s Vineyard. Vineyard Wind, which is backed by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Avangrid Renewables, bested two competitors for the contract authorized under a 2016 renewable energy law that requires the procurement of major hydroelectric and offshore wind resources to help reduce the state’s carbon footprint. “Today’s announcement brings the Commonwealth one step closer to achieving our administration’s goals of creating a clean, reliable, and cost-effective energy future for Massachusetts residents, and significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change,” Gov. Charlie Baker said in a statement. The current timetable calls for construction to begin in 2019 and for the wind farm to become operational by 2021.
