Castle Wind LLC

We are realizing the future of offshore wind energy through the development of a 1,000 MW floating offshore wind farm off California’s Central coast.

About Us

Our Mission

Castle Wind LLC’s mission is to bring a new, renewable energy source – offshore wind – to the California energy market by developing a commercial scale floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Morro Bay in Central California.

The Castle Wind team brings extensive experience in permitting, technology, utilities and energy markets to the development of Castle Wind Offshore.  The project will bring long-term sustainable jobs and significant economic benefits to the City of Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo County.

California has a vast offshore wind resource. Harvesting half of the commercially viable resource would amount to an installed capacity of 7.5 GW, which could generate approximately 35 TWh/year. That is equal to approximately 15% of California’s 2017 annual electric consumption, the equivalent amount of electricity generated by California’s current and former nuclear power plants.  While offshore wind offers deliverability, resiliency and resource adequacy to the California energy mix, it is also dispatchable and provides resource diversity, which is key to achieving renewable energy integration levels above 50% at the least cost.  Read more about the Castle Wind Offshore on the Projects page.

THE CASTLE WIND OFFSHORE PROJECT

Castle Wind Offshore, a floating offshore wind farm with a net capacity of 1,000 MW, will consist of approximately 100 floating offshore wind systems, which will harvest the vast offshore wind resource for the benefit of California electric consumers.
