The Block Island Wind Farm is a 30 megawatt (nameplate) demonstration-scale offshore wind farm approximately three miles southeast of Block Island consisting of 5 turbines. The wind farm is located entirely in Rhode Island state waters. The wind farm will generate over 125,000 megawatt hours annually, supplying the majority of Block Island’s electricity needs. Excess power will be exported to the mainland via the bi-directional Block Island Transmission System. Deepwater Wind plans to begin construction as early as 2014.
