DWBI, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Deepwater Wind Holdings, LLC, proposes to develop the Block Island Wind Farm (BIWF), a 30-megawatt (MW) offshore wind farm located approximately 3 mi (4.8 km) southeast of Block Island, Rhode Island and 16 mi (25.8 km) south of the Rhode Island mainland. The BIWF will consist of five 6-MW WTGs, a submarine cable interconnecting the WTGs (Inter-Array Cable), and a 34.5-kilovolt (kV) transmission cable approximately 7.2 mi (11.6 km) long from the northern most WTG to an interconnection point on Block Island (Export Cable). In connection with the BIWF, DWBIT, also a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of Deepwater Wind Holdings, LLC, proposes to develop the Block Island Transmission System (BITS). The BITS is a 34.5-kV alternating current (AC) bi-directional submarine transmission cable that will run approximately 25.1 mi ( 40.4 km) from its interconnection on Block Island to the interconnection on the Rhode Island mainland. DWBI will construct, own, and operate the BIWF. DWBIT will develop the BITS and will likely transfer ownership of the BITS to The Narragansett Electric Company d/b/a National Grid (TNEC). BIWF and BITS are collectively referred to as the "Project" for the purpose of environmental analysis.
