Although onshore wind is a growing part of the nation's power grid, offshore wind is just getting off the ground…Located 15 miles off the southern coast of Martha's Vineyard, the massive [Vineyard Wind] project aims to power more than 400,000 Massachusetts homes and businesses, slash carbon emissions and create thousands of jobs…America's power system needs a serious makeover in order to meet President Biden's emissions goals. Dirty coal must be replaced by much more solar and wind…[But] if the 84-turbine project flops, it will give ammunition to critics who argue offshore wind is too expensive, too unreliable and too complicated…
