On April 6, 2018, the Department of the Interior announced the Proposed Sale Notice for a Wind Energy Area offshore Massachusetts totaling nearly 390,000 acres. 

The Proposed Sale Notice provides detailed information concerning the area available for leasing, the proposed lease provisions and conditions, auction details (e.g., criteria for evaluating competing bids and award procedures) and lease execution.

BOEM invites you to an upcoming public seminar in Sterling, VA on April 26, 2018. A webinar will be available for those who are unable to attend in person. The seminar will describe the auction format, explain the auction rules and demonstrate the auction process through meaningful examples. The seminar will begin at approximately 9:00 AM and is expected to conclude around noon.
