Zoom Meeting 6:30pm

SAFE,

Salem is a very desirable site to participate in the cutting edge technology of Offshore Wind (OSW). Our DPA (Designated Port Area), one of three north of Boston is, according to the December 3, 2020 preliminary report commissioned by the Mass Clean Energy Center, the best site for OSW support for the Gulf of Maine and even beyond to the South. SAFE supports OSW Operations and Maintenance as well as Marshalling functions for the 42 acres currently owned by Footprint (they are willing to sell). We want to save our DPA, one of only 11 in our state and use it for marine/industrial uses as required by rules governing DPAs. We do not support giving up or limiting our DPA for the building of condos and other non marine/industrial uses. Once lost, a DPA will not be recovered.

We can save our DPA and revitalize the working function of our port: cruise ships, jobs, an expanded tax base–a return to our maritime history. In the early Nineteenth Century, Salem’s port was its glory. OSW offers us a Twenty-First Century opportunity for clean energy that will help save our planet our health.

Join us. We want to hear your thoughts.

Topic: OSW in the Gulf of Maine: When, Where, Why, and How?
Time: May 6, 2021 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
