According to Bloomberg, the bill passed unanimously in the Senate late Tuesday and now heads to Governor Ned Lamont. If he will sign it, regulators will have 14 days to produce a plan to solicit bids from developers. Previously, the state planned to buy only 300 megawatts of offshore wind.

"We will look back at this as a historic moment in the effort to tackle climate change in Connecticut with pride. The Connecticut legislature has shown that clean and renewable energy is a bipartisan issue that supports the environment and good jobs," said Samantha Dynowski, Connecticut State Director at the Sierra Club, according to Sierra Club.
