Off Shore Wind Farm Could Be Built Along The Oregon Coast

Portland, Oregon – A wind farm 15 miles off the Oregon coast? A Seattle company  is developing plans to build it. Five floating turbines would be built off Coos Bay in about 14-hundred feet of water.

The Department of Energy needs to do an environmental analysis before giving Principle Power the final green light. Supporters say off shore wind power means clean energy, would create jobs and help the economy.

The turbines would be linked by electrical cables with  another cable sending the  energy back to shore from the 30-megawatt pilot project.

    Two things, one they are very ugly look at the area around Biggs Junction. Two bet that just like the other wind turbines they are mostly supported by tax breaks or low interest loans otherwise they just like the others would never be built or feasible. There are other ways of producing power that work its just those with there head in the sand that keep wind and solar projects funded let them pay for those and try to use just the power they produce.
