Experts project that the cost of offshore wind will drop 26% between 2016 and 2020:

It’s never been a better time to go offshore – with bigger blades to produce more energy, advanced technology to combat rain erosion and rapidly declining costs. But the harsh offshore environment comes with additional challenges and the investment requires careful consideration. Here are six reasons why we believe you should go offshore with us! 1. Utilize the space the stronger winds at sea Our vast oceans offer plenty of space for clean energy production. Offshore winds blow stronger and more consistently than on land, providing a unique opportunity to harvest more energy, and in turn, power many more homes. 2. Invest in an energy source with rapidly declining costs The offshore industry is already realizing big reductions in cost. And there are more to come. Experts project that the cost of offshore energy production with drop significantly over the coming years. 3. Te...
