The Hills' Rachel Frazin is reporting that President Biden just appoved the largest offset wind project in the United States. 

The Biden administration has greenlit the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, set to be the nation's largest offshore wind farm, located 23.5 nautical miles from Virginia Beach. This is the fifth large-scale offshore wind project approved under the current administration, aligning with Biden's objective of using offshore wind energy to electrify 10 million U.S. homes by 2030 in a bid to combat climate change. While the Interior Department estimates the project could power approximately 900,000 homes, Dominion Energy, the project's owner, pegs the number at around 660,000 homes, citing different calculation methods. The wind farm is slated to house up to 176 turbines. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland emphasized the nation's accelerating drive towards clean energy targets.
