2.26.14 - Offshore wind farms can tame hurricanes, study finds - Stanford study finds that huge arrays consisting of "78,000 wind turbines — each 50 feet tall — off New Orleans could have slowed Katrina's wind speeds up to 78 mph and cut its storm surge up to 79%. An even larger phalanx off the East Coast could have reduced Sandy's winds up to 87 mph and its storm surge up to 34%. These farms minimize a city's storm surge most when located directly upwind."

Necessity is the mother of invention - most amazing wind farms. Better than messing up a landscape elsewhere. Setting these up in already degraded soils is better than compromising valuable, unspoiled land. - #AlternativePower

Wow - look at all of that offshore wind capacity in Europe. The US is seriously behind!

With turbines packed this densely, wind farms can be a significant cause of mortality to flying animals. But do they cause more harm than the carbon-based energy sources they replace?

9.6.14 - U.S. offshore wind power nears takeoff with 14 projects - "At least 54 gigawatts of its power could be produced and transmitted to the grid by 2030" and because of the proximity to major consumption centers, lower transmission costs would result in a savings of $7.68 billion per year.
