Newsom has a plan to keep the lights on in California — using fossil fuels
29 June 2022
California

Major environmental groups haven’t taken a position on Newsom’s proposal to streamline project approval, after an earlier provision that would have eliminated additional layers of review — including from the Coastal Commission — was removed. Local governments, though, are furious. In a letter opposing the bill, the California State Assn. of Counties, Urban Counties of California, Rural County Representatives of California and the League of California Cities said renewable energy facilities “can have enormous impacts on local communities.” They said the Energy Commission approval process is “overly broad, usurps local control, excludes local governments from meaningful involvement in major development projects within their jurisdictions, and could result in even more litigation.”

Fishermen join forces amid Humboldt County offshore wind development
14 June 2022
California

A recently formed association is seeking to afford some protection to the fishermen who will lose access to fishing grounds as the state and country transition to running on renewable energy like offshore wind. Earlier this year, Humboldt County’s commercial fishermen joined with other members of their industry across the North Coast, from Crescent City to San Francisco, to form the California Fishermen’s Resiliency Association. The association is a point of contact for offshore wind developers, with whom the association . . .

Challenges face wind energy project off the Humboldt County coast
5 June 2022
California

The state and federal government set ambitious goals for developing renewable energy— like Humboldt County’s offshore wind project – but how quickly that development materializes locally is a matter of debate. Earlier this week, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management published a proposed sale notice for five commercial wind energy leases off the coast of California – three off the coast of Morro Bay in Southern California and two off the coast of Humboldt Bay. The combined area up for lease is . . .

Morro Bay offshore wind leases will be up for bid soon — and they start at $8 million each

California

Exactly how will wind energy areas off the coasts of San Luis Obispo County and Humboldt County be leased to commercial developers? The U.S. Department of the Interior announced its proposed parameters for floating offshore wind farm leases in those areas on Thursday. The proposed sale notice explains that the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) expects to offer three leases in the Morro Bay wind energy area, a 376-square-mile section of the Pacific Ocean located northwest of Morro . . .

Coastal Commission moves offshore wind forward
16 April 2022
California

The California Coastal Commission voted unanimously April 7 to conditionally concur with a federal determination that allowing energy companies and organizations to study a proposed offshore wind farm area on the Humboldt County coast is consistent with the state’s Coastal Management Program. The highly technical and bureaucratic vote clears the way for companies interested in purchasing federal leases to erect large, floating offshore wind turbines to generate renewable electricity off the coast to begin studying and assessing the project site. . . .

Researchers: Offshore wind farm would alter ecosystem How wildlife will respond is still unclear
29 September 2020
California, Wildlife

There’s still a lot of uncertainty surrounding how an offshore wind farm would impact specific species off the coast, but researchers say it will change the area’s ecosystem. Wildlife in the area may be impacted by the noise potentially being generated by the turbines, the vessel traffic that also creates noise and increases the chance of a collision, and the change in the ocean floor substrate from soft to hard, Sharon Kramer, project researcher at ecological consultants H.T.

California, Oregon

California’s North Coast, along with southern Oregon, has the strongest offshore winds in the U.S., researchers say, and could generate approximately 4% of the state’s electricity needs if a larger offshore wind farm was built in a 200-square-mile area about 20 miles off the coast of Humboldt Bay. “It’s quite significant,” Arne Jacobson, director of the Schatz Energy Research Center at Humboldt State University, said at a virtual session presenting the findings of local offshore wind research on Monday afternoon. . . .

US military squeezes wind energy development off California’s Central Coast
16 March 2020
California

Developers, state officials and federal agencies working toward the creation of a thriving wind industry off California’s Central Coast have encountered a formidable opponent: the U.S. military. The Pentagon’s space restrictions in West Coast waters have so far stymied efforts to generate carbon-free electricity using floating wind turbines above the Outer Continental Shelf. The conflict threatens to further delay the federal government’s auction of leases in the state’s most desirable area for offshore wind energy development, originally planned for 2018. . . .
