The region of coverage for the Southeastern Coastal Wind Coalition initially includes five coastal states: Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
The Southeastern Coastal Wind Coalition works to advance the coastal and offshore wind industry in the Southeast. We focus on supply chain growth, economic development, job growth, and wind energy development in the region with solutions that are beneficial to industry, beneficial to utilities, and result in net economic benefits to citizens and ratepayers. The Coalition takes an objective, transparent, data-driven, and economically focused approach to advance the industry and inform policy discussions while working closely with utilities via a Utility Advisory Group (UAG) to find mutually beneficial solutions.
Our key members include industry (e.g. manufacturers, utilities, suppliers, developers, consultants, service providers), appropriate government bodies (economic developers, commerce departments, energy offices), academic and research institutions, and other non-profit groups that share our objectives. The Coalition is currently applying for designation as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
