Delmarva Energy Link
Skip Navigation LinksHome AWC Projects Project Phases Delmarva Energy Link
The Delmarva Energy Link is an offshore electrical transmission cable that will serve wind farms to be built at least 10 miles off the coasts of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The Delmarva Energy Link will also make electric transmission grid in these states more efficient and reliable, and create new clean energy jobs for residents.

Buried under the ocean floor and running the length of the coastline, the Delmarva Energy Link will bring power to shore at three locations serving Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. When complete, it will be capable of carrying 3,000 megawatts of offshore wind – enough to power more than 1 million homes.

The Delmarva Energy Link is expected to be built in two phases. The first phase will connect Delaware to Maryland with two offshore hubs serving the Wind Energy Areas off the coasts of both states. The second phase connects the first phase to Virginia and adds an offshore hub serving the Wind Energy Area off the coast of Virginia.

The key objects of the Delmarva Energy Link project are to:

  • Provide the most efficient and cost-effective transmission solution for delivering offshore wind to consumers
  • Create thousands of jobs for residents
  • Lower energy prices by reducing grid congestion
  • Improve the reliability and resiliency of the grid
