Maine is mentioned much less than it's neighbors MA and NY when it comes to offshore wind-- do they have any particular advantages compared with those other states? And is their reduced profile simply from reduced shoreline?

I suspect the answer may lie in water depths Matt.  We in the offshore wind sector went for the shallows in the first instance. Floating wind is bringing areas previously scoped-out back into contention.
