While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    THE FIRST U.S. OCEAN WIND

    merica Is Getting Its First Offshore Wind Farm

    Jamie Condliffe, March 3, 2015 (Gizmodo)

    “…Deepwater Wind has announced that it's secured full funding to build America's first offshore wind farm…The project will see five 6 megawatt offshore wind turbines built just off the coast of [Rhode Island’s Block Island]. Producing 30 megawatts of energy total, undersea power cables will route the resulting electricity to…[Block Island and the] mainland where some of it will be injected into the grid…[It could save locals] as much as 40 percent on their energy bills, because they currently rely on diesel generators for electricity…Offshore wind farms do away with many of the concerns [about noise and aesthetics that some] have about onshore wind power…Offshore installations also typically produce more energy, because wind speeds are typically higher out at sea…[Building and maintaining them is more expensive but Deepwater Wind] secured a total of $290 million to fund the new project. It will join similar farms that have been built extensively across Europe, particularly around the UK and Denmark…If all goes to plan, the farm will begin to supply energy by the end of 2016.’ click here for more
