Port of Long Beach announce events for Pier Wind project

The Port of Long Beach will be hosting two events to provide information and gather input for the upcoming environmental review for Pier Wind.

The Pier Wind project is a proposed 400-acre terminal designed to facilitate the assembly and deployment of offshore wind turbines.

If approved, the planned Pier Wind project would be the largest of its type on the West Coast, helping California reach its renewable energy targets, according to the port.
