Offshore Wind Energy in Humboldt County

Humboldt County has been featured in local, national, and international news since 2018 as a potentially ideal location for offshore wind energy generation. RCEA, tasked with developing local renewable resources and energy-related economic advancement, has taken the lead in coordinating the extensive planning and research process required for what could be California’s first floating offshore wind project. On May 25, 2021 the Biden-Harris Administration announced an agreement to advance areas for offshore wind off the northern (Humboldt County) and central coasts of California.
