New report: California could meet entire electricity demand with offshore wind

SACRAMENTO -A new report released Thursday by Environment California Research & Policy Center and Frontier Group titled, Offshore Wind for America, examines U.S. offshore wind potential by both coastal region and by state, while documenting the status of existing projects and technological advances. California could provide 157% of 2019 electricity usage with offshore wind alone. For projections of 2050 electricity demand, the report assumes that U.S. buildings, industry and transportation will all be powered by electricity rather than fossil fuels by mid-century.
