The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) announced yesterday that the Vineyard Wind 1 project set to be constructed off the coast of Massachusetts will create 3,600 jobs and provide enough power for 400,000 homes and businesses. Approval was for up to 84 turbines about 12 nautical miles offshore from Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
