US: Offshore #wind turbines could power the entire East Coast - & boost economy $200bn via @s

Wind turbines in the Atlantic Ocean could power the entire East Coast, according to two reports, which are pushing for action in developing this long delayed industry. A Stanford University research study finds that 144,0000, 5-megawatt turbines (274 feet tall) similar to those already used off the coasts of Denmark and Germany would be needed. Researchers aren't advocating for an all-wind strategy because diversified resources are important, but they make a compelling case for generating at least 50% of demand with wind. The research maps ideal sites up and down the Atlantic coast, favoring areas with lower hurricane risk north of Virginia and areas where turbines would be most difficult to see from shore. It also identifies the most economically sound sites, especially near New York and Boston which experiences high electricity prices in periods of peak demand. The uncer...
