How large is the site area and is there an exclusion zone?
The gross size of the requested project site area is 106.17 sq mi (275.04 km2 or 67,962 ac). The final site area will be significantly smaller and will be finalized following the completion of the detailed site characterization of geophysical, oceanographic, and seabed conditions. The final area for the wind farm will be approximately 55.58 sq mi (144 km2 or 35,582.40 ac). There is no exclusion zone required on the wind farm perimeter, but the area will prohibit commercial fish trawling and netting.
