Virginia-based Dominion Energy has signed an agreement with Denmark-based Dong Energy to construct two 6 MW turbines, 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. This will be built on a 2,135 acre site that has been leased out by the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy. This is the country’s first mid- Atlantic offshore wind project and is expected to be completed by end-2020. The coastal Virginia offshore wind project will act as an example for developing larger projects in the future. Dominion Energy remains the sole owner of the project.
