Designing and Building North America’s first offshore wind farm
Test models have performed well in the laboratory, but the farm’s real turbines will need to stand up to the region’s bleak weather. If they do work, experts believe that they can generate enough electricity to power the US four times over.
Critics, however, worry that the cost of such a development will be passed on to consumers, as the US has no formal energy policy.
