Revolution Wind 2 project could bring renewable power to 500,000 residents.


PROVIDENCE, RI – Rhode Island’s offshore wind leaders Ørsted and Eversource say they have submitted a joint proposal in response to the state’s offshore wind solicitation.

The developers say that the proposed 884-megawatt Revolution Wind 2 project could represent renewable power for more than 500,000 Rhode Island homes.

Rhode Island governor Daniel McKee announced Rhode Island’s second competitive offshore wind solicitation in July of last year.

The companies are currently developing the Revolution Wind project, and are expected to start construction on the project later this year. Revolution Wind is expected to deliver 400 megawatts of offshore wind power to nearly 200,000 Rhode Island homes, and be operational by 2025.
