Bay State Wind alters layout for offshore wind farm, but fisheries call foul

"The fishing industry can only hope that the wind energy developers finally recognize that U.S. fishermen are going to do whatever is necessary to continue to fish where they please for the foreseeable future," Dave Wallace, a Maryland-based consultant for the ocean clam industry, said in an email. "Developers have two choices, a confrontational way, which is time-consuming and expensive, or through the two industries finding common grounds where both can survive and prosper."

NY ratepayers will pay for $2.1B offshore wind plan, but won't get the energy

New York state ratepayers will pick up the tab for the Cuomo Administration’s multi-billion dollar plan to jump-start the offshore wind industry, but most won’t benefit from the energy produced. Only consumers in Long Island and New York City will be able to access the wind-powered energy that’s going to be generated in the waters off the state’s Atlantic coast in the years to come.

Deepwater is set to embark on a study that could last a month or more to determine the underwater geology of 256 square miles of Rhode Island Sound about 18 miles southeast of Block Island. There, in waters that it’s leasing from the federal government, the Providence-based company plans to install dozens and dozens of wind turbines.

County to consider step toward wind energy project near Lompoc

“We also don’t like the double standard with regard to the environmental and deadly impact on birds and bats, as wind typically gets a free pass in comparison to what oil companies and farmers have to go through,” Caldwell said. “One more thing,” he added. “The county needs to demand a new EIR. These turbines are larger than the old ones, and the other EIR is 10 years old.”

‘Don’t Blow It Texas’ meets to discuss recent developments

“There was a large group of landowners here in Val Verde that are concerned about the impacts of that and their respective property rights. This is a very strong state for private property rights, and we belong to that line of thinking, and we believe we can do whatever we can on our individual properties, as long as it doesn’t harm our neighbors,” he added.
