BIG news on offshore wind!
Maine is proposing to build the first floating wind farm in the Gulf of Maine! While it is a starter project of a dozen turbines for research purposes, it should get the ball rolling for larger projects in the area. While there is some of complaining from fishing interests, it’s important to remember that this research is being done for their benefit, as the Gulf continues to heat up and fish stocks decline due to climate disruption.
