Auction Set For MD Wind Turbine Farm

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Among the many things you might find in the waters of Ocean City, you might soon add wind turbines to the list.
 
The U.S. Secretary of the Interior announced Thursday that 80,000 acres are set to be offered for commercial wind energy development. The area covers about 94 square nautical miles of ocean beginning about 11 miles off the shores of Ocean City.

Two leases will be auctioned, a northern area and a southern area.

A bill allowing the farm passed in Maryland in 2013.
