Gov. Chris Sununu has joined governors in some neighboring states in seeking a federal study of offshore wind power, as a new study supports that technology’s ability to help New England cope with natural gas shortages during extreme cold spells.

Sununu’s Jan. 2 letter asks the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to establish a federal task force to study “renewable energy commercial leasing proposals in federal waters” off New Hampshire. This is the first of many steps necessary for large-scale wind farms to be built off New Hampshire’s 18-mile coastline, which is the shortest of all coastal states.
