We seek to minimize Beacon Wind’s impact on the environment by collaborating with conservation and preservation groups, fisheries, front-line and tribal communities, and others. We are committed to best practices to mitigate environmental and social impacts from the development of renewable energy in the Beacon Wind lease area. We believe in the cooperative coexistence of offshore wind development with wildlife and marine industries.
Beacon Wind is conducting numerous environmental studies to learn how to best coexist with marine life and birds in the lease area. We are committed to sharing our data with all stakeholders and the public.
Responsibly developing offshore wind and mitigating the potential impacts to marine life takes collaboration. That’s why we’re partnering with other offshore wind developers, on a Highly Migratory Species study being led by the New England Aquarium and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
This multi-year marine life tagging program is designed to track key highly migratory fish species off the shores of the Northeast, including in the Beacon Wind lease area, and develop a sophisticated understanding of how plans for the expansion of offshore wind can work in harmony with species that have called our area home for centuries
