One year after the successful 800MW solicitation won by Vineyard Wind, the State of Massachusetts administration and utilities are putting another 800MW offshore wind contract out to bid.

The state Department of Energy Resources (DOER) and electric distribution companies Eversource, National Grid and Unitil have filed documents with Massachusetts regulators to initiate the second procurement, with the goal of executing a final contract by the end of 2019.

The timeframe for the next procurement, which is subject to Department of Public Utilities approval, calls for bids to be submitted in August, project selection in November and execution of a long-term contract by the end of 2019, enabling the venture that secures the contract to secure federal investment tax credits.

The link to the application is here and you can also visit 83C II, 83C II Documents, 83C II Timeline, 83C II Bidder Conference and 83C II Q&A pages for more information.
