1 Gigawatt New England Offshore Wind Farm Inches Forward - Production Could Begin in 2016

1 Gigawatt New England Offshore Wind Farm Inches Forward - Production Could Begin in 2016

The project will have somewhere around 200 turbines, most of which will be 20-25 miles off shore with the nearest being 13.8 miles. Construction is currently scheduled to begin in 2014 or 2015, with the first power produced two years after the start date. The project developers are billing DWEC as a second-generation offshore wind power project in the United States--but considering the US has exactly zero offshore wind power projects constructed, and a rather meagre handful even under development, that moniker frankly sounds as PR fluff. Regardless, it's a massive project, among the largest proposed anywhere in the world. In addition to DWEC, Deepwater Wind has plans for offshore wind power projects at three additional locations in the northeast .
