Interim Policy

An interim policy was announced November 2007 before the issuance of BOEM’s renewable energy regulations in April 2009. The interim policy allowed for limited leasing and was designed for resource data collection and technology testing activities. The interim policy leases have a five year term and provide no subsequent commercial rights. In June 2009, BOEM offered a total of five leases, four in New Jersey and one in Delaware. Four of the offered leases were executed on November 1, 2009. All executed Interim Policy Leases to date can be found below:
