US President Joe Biden has unveiled plans that would allow wind farms to be built along almost the entire coast of the United States. Home Secretary Deb Haaland announced on Wednesday that it relates to seven different areas off the US coast that will be auctioned off in the coming years.
According to Haaland, the plans are part of an “ambitious roadmap” to tackle climate change. With wind farms, President Biden wants to generate enough power to power 10 million households by 2030. However, the government’s plans still need approval from several coastal and environmental groups before construction can begin.
Biden announced earlier this year that he wants to invest hundreds of billions in American infrastructure. His plan includes major investments in clean and sustainable energy sources, such as solar parks and wind turbines, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. He set the goal that the United States should be fully climate neutral by 2050.
