I think we're gonna have a problem. They probably said that I have ver- lot of difficulty seeing the turbines at all because of all the fish and we looked at the footage and sure enough.

"This conversation i started saying that The electrical grid in order to support an offshore wind needed to be improved or it needed to be further refined developed. That is something dominion energy. I think has taken on on. How do you get the power from twenty seven nautical miles offshore into the electrical grid. That's that's here in accountable. So let's talk about the commercial project. I think that's probably the the most substantial because the two six megawatts there's cabling that comes ashore. It comes ashore right right near the state military register camp pendleton and it goes into electrical substation that goes directly into the grid. When we're talking the two point six gigawatts of energy that'll be generated by the commercial project. It'll be a bit more simple. Have approximately a hundred and eighty wind turbine generators within that lease area that you showed earlier for the commercial project about a third of those will go each into an electrical Offshore substation that offshore substation will do the power conversion and then they'll be inter array cables that are connected to each offshore substation the offshore substations export cable. Which will once again come shore near the state military reservation or camp pendleton and come in to the grid. After it goes through some portions on land it will actually go into the federal substation chesapeake. So that's one of the benefits that dominion energy has what we are not going to be a developer who has to have a power purchase agreement with another Others power supplier. We already had existing infrastructure. It's just building the turbines the offshore substations offshore running the cable which is about two meters down and bringing it ashore to one of our existing substations. I in fact live about three mile actually two miles from the From that substation. So it'll be coming ashore. In virginia beach it'll becoming to a substation in chesapeake. Go right directly into the grid. So i'm gonna test my memory here a little bit again and see whether or not i'm accurate. You can please correct me if i'm wrong..
