Bay State Wind, an initiative between Ørsted and Eversource, have submitted a bid to create Massachusetts’ first offshore wind farm. This new system would be 25 miles off the coast of New Bedford and would include battery backup. They join other companies, such as Tesla and Deepwater Wind, that have offered proposals to create offshore large-scale renewable energy solutions for the Northeastern United States.

Ørsted was formerly known as Dong Energy and is the largest worldwide developer of offshore wind energy. They’ve aggressively been working with states in the Northeast to construct more capacity off their coasts and they anticipate to hit 6.5 gigawatts worldwide by 2020. The company has collaborated with New England’s largest energy provider, Eversource, who will be distributing the power the wind farm generates onshore.
