U.S. BOEM finalizes two Wind Energy Areas in the Gulf of Mexico

The two areas have the potential to produce enough clean wind energy to power nearly 3 million homes and are part of the Biden-Harris administration’s goal of deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind energy capacity by 2030.

The first zone is located approximately 24 nautical miles (nm) off the coast of Galveston, Texas. The area totals 508,265 acres and has the potential to power 2.1 million homes. The second WEA is located approximately 56 nm off the coast of Lake Charles, Louisiana. The area totals 174,275 acres and has the potential to power over 740,000 homes.

BOEM uses its renewable energy competitive leasing process to identify the offshore locations that appear most suitable for development. The ecosystem has a huge influence on the research process, as the BOEM searches for areas that have the least conflict with other uses and the lowest environmental impact.

“These two wind energy areas represent exciting progress toward having the first offshore wind lease sale in the Gulf of Mexico, where there is a mature industry base and the know how to advance energy development in the OCS. The Region can play a central role in our nation’s clean energy transition to support good paying jobs, fight climate change,” said BOEM Director Amanda Lefton. “BOEM will continue to work with the coastal states and communities as we advance our work and do so in a manner that seeks to avoid or minimize conflicts with other ocean uses and marine life in the Gulf of Mexico.”
