Offshore Wind Ugly? I think not.

September 9th, 2008

It just so happens that the first beach I ever visited is taking its first steps toward offshore wind-driven turbines. That beach is Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.

The project is scheduled to be completed by 2012, but some opponents think it might make the shoreline ugly. I disagree. Isn’t it a much prettier site than what you’d see with offshore oil drilling? Maybe I’m a little too hippie, but I like the look of wind turbines doing their thing.

Get details at Offshore wind farms may line U.S. coast by CNN.

What do you think? Are you opposed to seeing wind turbines off the shores of beaches in the US?
