Cape Romain -Call Area Offshore Wind Farm

31 Aug 2016: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is reviewing the financial and technical qualifications of two wind companies that responded to the South Carolina call in 2015: “We’re conducting our final review and I believe we’ll have a determination on the qualifications this summer.” US Wind showed interest in the Grand Strand area, with Fishermen’s Energy showing interest in all four areas (Grand Strand, Cape Romain, Winyah and Charleston). BOEM reviewed applications and requested additional information. As of the 17th May BOEM were conducting final review and planning to have a determination on the qualifications this summer(2016). If only one qualified developer is interested in areas the agency will ask for acquisition fees of 25 cents an acre and conduct environmental assessments. If competitive interest continues for the Grand Strand call area, the bureau will complete area identification and environmental reviews and then move ahead with an auction process. BOEM recently incorporated two proposed wind energy areas in North Carolina(Wilmington West and Wilmington East) into the South Carolina leasing process because of concerns over wake effect, visual impacts and an expansion of the North Atlantic right whale critical habitat.
