On Tuesday, Secretary of the U.S. Interior Deb Haaland, National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Dr. Colin Kahl, and Governor Gavin Newsom announced an agreement to advance areas for offshore wind off the northern and central coasts of California.  This milestone is part of the Biden Administration’s goal to create thousands of jobs through the deployment of 30 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030.  The U.S. Department of the Interior has identified an area northwest of Morro Bay in San Luis Obispo County as well as an area near Humboldt County as potential Wind Energy Areas.
