The North Carolina Offshore Wind Cost-Benefit Analysis shows that constructing 2.8-gigawatts of offshore wind off North Carolina’s coast by 2030 will result in a net economic benefit of up to $4.6 billion for the state’s economy.
Louisiana's legacy of offshore energy manufacturing and production positions the state to lead on the burgeoning offshore wind industry.
South Carolina should capitalize on its supply chain and manufacturing capabilities to take advantage of the $70B offshore wind industry.
North Carolina must pursue offshore wind development to reap the benefits of the estimated $70 billion offshore wind supply chain. This fact sheet outlines North Carolina's progress to date in pursuing the industry, as well as the state's strengths in acheiving that goal.
Offshore wind has a bright future in Virginia, thanks to a history of support
Virginia is poised to be a leading state for both land-based and offshore wind in the Southeast. This fact sheet lays out the state of wind in Virginia and the many ways Virginia's economy can benefit.
An overview of the regulations and laws that cover the siting of wind farms
The Southeast contains a significant portion of the countries wind energy supply chain despite having few operational projects. This fact sheet highlights many of the benefits the wind energy supply chain provides to the region.
You don't need to be either pro-wind or pro-military. This fact sheet identifies ways that wind farms can co-exist with military bases without compromising the preparedness of the base and touches on some of the benefits wind energy can provide.
Wind farms and farmers can form a perfect partnership. Find out all the benefits wind farms can provide to farmers, as well as the local economy.

Over the next decade offshore wind is expected to play a significant role in decarbonizing the U.S. electric sector, and especially along the East Coast. When states are considering offshore wind goals, they will certainly evaluate the myriad of associated costs and benefits. This analysis was developed to help decision makers quantify some of the economic development and environmental benefits associated with offshore wind.
The Southeastern Wind Coalition (SEWC) requested a study from the North Carolina Transmission Planning Collaborative (NCTPC) of the feasibility and costs of injecting up to 5000 MW of offshore wind power at up to 3 sites in eastern DEP, or possibly connecting to and wheeling offshore wind power from Dominion Virginia Power (Dominion, DVP).
