Vineyard Wind Officials to Hold Info Sessions in Centerville

CENTERVILLE – Vineyard Wind will hold an information session this week at the Centerville Public Library.

Project officials will discuss its proposal to construct an 800-megawatt offshore wind farm south of Martha’s Vineyard and bring power to shore in Barnstable.

The session is Thursday, November 21 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The last info session of the year will be held December 19 at the Centerville Public Library from 4 to 6 p.m.

The project hit a roadblock this summer when federal regulators delayed issuing a key environmental impact report.

The company said it is still committed to building the wind farm.

Vineyard Wind was the first off shore wind development project chosen by the state.

A second proposed development, Mayflower Wind, was selected at the end of October to begin contract negotiations with electric distribution companies. That development would be located about 20 miles south of Nantucket.
