The Virginia General Assembly established the Mid-Atlantic Offshore Wind Energy Infrastructure Development Compact in 2009 with member states including: Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and New York. The compact was designed to: (1) study, develop and promote coordinated research and planning of the design, construction, utility interconnection, financing and operation of offshore wind energy infrastructure and operations directly adjacent to the shores of the party states; (2) coordinate federal, state and local government efforts; and (3) seek funding opportunities. The law enabling the Compact was repealed in 2011.
