Biden bets big on wind power ahead of climate summit

President Biden is betting big on wind power to demonstrate U.S. climate commitments ahead of an international summit that starts in just over two weeks.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said at an industry conference Wednesday that her agency hopes to lease installation sites in the Gulf of Mexico, the Gulf of Maine and off of California, Oregon and the Atlantic coast by 2025. The move comes just months after the administration approved the first major commercial offshore wind farm, near Martha’s Vineyard.
