(EUREKA, CA) – Vineyard Offshore CEO Alicia Barton release the below statement in response to the historic $426 million grant from the US Department of Transportation for construction and maintenance of offshore wind infrastructure in Humboldt County:
“This is a consequential investment in California’s clean energy future. We know firsthand the transformative power a highly specialized marine terminal can have on a local community, look no further than New Bedford, Massachusetts. The construction of this terminal will create good paying jobs with good benefits and revitalize the harbor district, all while making every effort to ensure the strongest environmental protections. It’s a project like this that will allow us to power healthy communities with 100% clean energy as we grow the offshore wind industry."
