On August 30, the Department of the Interior announced that the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) would be conducting an environmental review of the proposed, commercial-scale Sunrise Offshore Wind Project proposed by Sunrise Wind LLC.
On August 31, BOEM published a Notice of Intent (NOI) to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement in the Federal Register on the proposed project, which initiated a 30-day public comment period, ending on September 30.
On September 3, BOEM will publish a correction to the NOI to address technical errors found in the original notice. Through this notice, BOEM will also extend the public comment period until 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on October 4.
