The bids are broken up into two sections, 83D and 83C, the latter covering offshore wind. In many cases, the information on the bids themselves is so heavily redacted, that in terms of supplying information to the public, it is a worthless charade. In other words, in some cases, gargantuan projects which a company has been working on for perhaps five years, are still cloaked in deep secrecy. This is so by the time a project is actually announced and an application in Maine is filed, the public has very little time to react. There is no good reason for this, other than for the bidder to have a gigantic advantage over the public, i.e., those who ultimately pay for the project as U.S. taxpayers and ratepayers.
