8 Gulf of Maine locations selected for potential offshore wind farm leases

The federal government is proposing eight areas in the Gulf of Maine as possible locations for commercial offshore wind farms.

The proposed lease areas cover about 1 million acres and have the potential to generate 15 gigawatts of energy, enough to power five million homes, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) said Tuesday.

Two of the sites, covering nearly 254,000 acres, are located off the coast of Maine. The remaining six are off Massachusetts.
