OCEAN VIEW - In a landmark partnership, the Baltimore-based wind-development company US Wind pledged $100,000 to the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays.

The support will serve as a capstone contribution to the National Estuary Program's master plan for the center's James Farm Ecological Preserve, Ocean View. The new facility will be named the US Wind Environmental Education Center at the James Farm Ecological Preserve.

Chris Bason, executive director of the Center for the Inland Bays, commended US Wind's commitment to clean, renewable energy and healthy coastlines in a statement Thursday. He said its support will greatly improve the center's capacity to educate and engage youth and adults in watershed restoration for decades to come.

Established in 2011, US Wind is developing an 80,000-acre federal lease area off the coast of Maryland. In 2021, the company submitted its plan to fully satisfy Maryland's offshore-wind goals by providing an additional 1,200 megawatts with the full build-out of Momentum Wind.
