"Developing the Emerging Offshore Wind Industry in New Bedford"

Developing the Offshore Wind Industry in New Bedford

In New Bedford, we are currently in a moment of maximum opportunity as the city is poised to become the center of a new national growth industry – offshore wind. The development of the American offshore wind industry has the potential to create new jobs, attract substantial private sector investment, and generate long-term sustainable economic growth in New Bedford and across the SouthCoast of Massachusetts. It is an opportunity unlike anything the city has seen in generations, and one that builds upon our existing assets, enhances our natural resources, and is implemented through an innovative and regional collaboration between the public, private and non-profit sectors.
