On December 19, 2023, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) announced a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS), which will analyze potential impacts of Federal offshore wind energy development activities on the five offshore wind lease areas off California’s central and northern coast. The NOI also initiated a 60-day comment period to solicit public feedback on the scope of the PEIS, including potential alternatives and draft mitigation measures.
BOEM will host two virtual scoping meetings where the public can learn about the environmental review process and provide comments on the scope of the draft PEIS. The virtual scoping meetings will be held on:
|Tuesday, February 6, 2024
10:00 am PT
|Thursday, February 8, 2024
5:00 pm PT
Additional information on the California Offshore Wind PEIS can be found on the CA Offshore Wind PEIS page.
