Wind Farms Off the Coast of Rhode Island Could Generate 1,000 GW of Electricity

Comments Off on Wind Farms Off the Coast of Rhode Island Could Generate 1,000 GW of Electricity

Secretary Ken Salazar made an appearance in Rhode Island today to announce that the Federal government was accepting applications for offshore wind farm projects off the coast of the state and that it would start signing offshore leases for those projects by 2012. Rhode Island is getting special attention because of the huge potential for offshore wind in the state.  Salazar pointed to an NREL study that found that Rhode Island offshore wind farms could potentially generate 1,000 gigawatts of electricity — enough to power most of the U.S. The state has already announced plans for a couple of offshore projects:  one is a smaller wind farm that will power the currently diesel-generator-dependent Block Island and feed any excess power to the mainland and the other is the huge 1,000 MW Deepwater Wind Energy Center that will be located in the Rhode Island Sound with transmission lines running from Massachusetts to New York. With the government pledging to start signing offshore leases and the wealth of electricity that could be generated, there will likely be more cropping up soon. via Huffington Post
