The Avangrid project would eventually produce 2.5 gigawatts, which is enough electricity to power 700,000 homes. That’s twice the number of households in Charlotte. There’s already one big offshore wind project in the planning stages off Kitty Hawk. Avangrid Renewables has submitted construction and operation plans to federal regulators for a wind farm 27 miles offshore. Cooper’s new executive order sets a target of 2.8 gigawatts in offshore wind energy by 2030 and 8 gigawatts by 2040. That would be enough electricity to power 2.4 million homes.

What You Need To Know “North Carolina’s national leadership in clean energy and manufacturing plus our highly trained workforce create a strong business environment for offshore wind supply chain and manufacturing companies,” he said in a statement.

State leaders say North Carolina’s manufacturing industry could be an asset for offshore wind development “Offshore wind power will help North Carolina create jobs and generate economic development while helping us transition to a clean energy economy,” Cooper said.

Katharine Kollins, president of the Southeast Wind Coalition, said she was happy to see the executive order put resources in state agencies to help push for offshore wind.

“There’s a lot of competing demands on our coast,” said George Bonner, director of the N.C. Renewable Ocean Energy Program at the Coastal Studies Institute. “Whether that’s commercial fishing or recreational fishing, obviously anything we do we want to make sure we’re protecting the marine resources.” There are almost 4 million households in North Carolina, according to 2019 Census Bureau estimates.
