Plans for wind farms off Morro Bay could be killed by Navy

“Information provided by BOEM to the Department of Defense indicates that the unsolicited offshore wind proposal from Trident is for an area within Department of the Navy ‘wind exclusion’ areas off the coast of Central California. These ‘wind exclusion’ areas are locations on the outer continental shelf where wind energy development will adversely impact Navy and/or Marine Corps testing, training and operational activities.”

An energy bill that's bad for marine mammals and most everything else on the planet

A third problem is the bill’s requirement that the federal government sell wind leases off the California coast within a year of enactment.

Wind farms should not be arbitrarily rushed into existence, as this bill would do.
