On October 28, the Department of the Interior announced that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) will conduct an environmental review of the proposed Mayflower Wind Energy’s plan to build up to 147 wind turbines and up to 5 offshore power substations approximately 30 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, and 23 miles south of Nantucket, Massachusetts.
