Offshore Wind Drives Economic Development

The U.S. wind industry is a major economic development driver. In addition to job creation and billions of dollars in project investment, the wind industry invests heavily in local communities, providing significant revenue in the form of property, state, and local taxes.

Local Tax Benefits

"Energy providers are typically some of the largest taxpayers in rural counties. These tax payments can fund local schools, hospitals, police and fire departments."

Corporate Investments

"...states with attractive renewable energy policies can spur economic investment from corporate customers and wind project developers alike. Companies investing in wind energy prefer to site new facilities near the wind projects where their energy is procured."
