Four wind power developers submit new plans to CT, two other neighboring states

Connecticut energy officials and their counterparts in Massachusetts and Rhode Island have received offshore wind project proposals from four developers: Avangrid Renewables, Orsted, SouthCoast Wind and Vineyard Offshore. The developers submitted their bids on Wednesday, and Connecticut officials say they are reviewing the proposals. Details of the plans were not immediately available. The first project developer, Avangrid Renewables, is a subsidiary of the Orange-based energy holding company Avangrid, while Orsted is a Danish energy company. SouthCoast Wind is a joint venture by EDP Renewables, a Spanish energy company and ENGIE, which is based in France. Officials in the three states announced last October they would form a consortium to evaluate wind power proposals from developers. Collectively, the three states are seeking 6,800 megawatts with Connecticut looking for up to 2,000 megawatts of that total.
