On July 10, 2017, Dominion Energy announced that is was partnering with Denmark-based Dong Energy (online at http://www.dongenergy.com/en) to place two six megawatt (MW)-capacity test turbines on the Virginia Beach coast by 2020. The pilot project would be the second offshore wind-energy project in the United States, following the Block Island project off the Rhode Island coast that began operating in 2016. Virginia officials have said that the Virginia Beach offshore project could ultimately develop into a 2000-MW facility on over 112,000 acres that Dominion leases from the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.
