The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has designated two “call areas” for siting offshore wind energy turbines off Oregon’s coast (west of Coos Bay and Brookings).  Once these areas have been confirmed after a comment period, leases will be offered within the call areas for prospective wind energy developers. The public has until June 28 to comment on the appropriateness of these areas and the potential environmental impacts.

To learn more about the process and the concerns, see our website article.
