More offshore wind farms are coming… Here is Stanley Reed, New York Times:

”Falling costs for offshore projects have caught the attention of electric power providers and investors in the United States. By planting large arrays of turbines on the sea bottom, developers say they can construct large installations that are mostly out of sight of land yet within easy transmission range of large population centers like Boston and New York.

These projects can generate large amounts of electricity free of carbon dioxide emissions, and can be used to meet clean energy targets and to replace aging nuclear and coal-fired power stations. Among other states, New Jersey and New York have ambitions to build substantial offshore wind projects.”
