The story adds:

Vineyard Wind, a joint venture of Avangrid and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, was to be the first major offshore wind farm in the United States. It would be financed through contracts with three major Massachusetts electric utilities.

The Cape Cod Times quoted Heather Zichal, CEO of American Clean Power Association, as saying:

“We applaud (Biden appointee Amanda Lefton, director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management), for hitting the ground running and moving President Biden’s offshore wind agenda forward as we move swiftly ahead to harness the 83,000 American jobs and $25 billion in annual investments this untapped energy source represents for the U.S. by the end of this decade. There is no time to waste.”
