(Providence, RI) -- Deepwater Wind is releasing the numbers it says will be generated by a new wind project in federally leased ocean space. The Providence-based company announced yesterday that the Revolution Wind project could result in as many as eight-hundred construction jobs, and that Deepwater will invest 250-million dollars locally on the project, including 40-million dollars for ports. Deepwater officials say they will not seek or receive any state tax incentives or credits. The state announced it was purchasing four-hundred megawatts of electricity from a Deepwater wind farm near Martha's Vineyard.
