Wind turbines off the Maryland coast just got a boost.
The Maryland Public Service Commission has awarded renewable energy credits for two projects that will be built in the waters just off the Ocean City.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that the decision will allow U.S. Wind and Skipjack Offshore Energy to begin construction of the turbines.
It is expected to produce 368 megawatts of power.
The projects are expected to generate nearly $2 billion in spending for Maryland creating nearly 97-hundred jobs over the next 20 years.
