Coffee and Conversation with Alla Weinstein

Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 8:30am

This month, Alla Weinstein of Castle Winds will join us to discuss the upcoming changes to the Morro Bay coastline. In Jan 2016 Trident Winds submitted an unsolicited lease request to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) for the development of a commercial offshore wind farm off the coast of Morro Bay.  By the end of this year BOEM will be conducting a competitive lease auction that will see 3 developers securing sites off the coast of Morro Bay.  The original site defined in 2916 lease request is now part of the Morro Bay lease areas.
She will provide an overview of the process that will be followed from now till the auction and what will take place post the auction, including offshore wind technologies that will be used for the installation of offshore wind in the water depths found offs the coast of Morro Bay and along the West Coast.
