New use for off shore wind farms

New use my foot, I have been writing, talking, teaching, preaching and crying about this since the early 1970’s.

Noon news today my good friends on a station that we always enjoy watching gave the report and then all three, including our weatherman poked fun at the amount of turbines needed to slow down dangerous winds?

Slow it down?

I say bring it on, show me what you got!

To the lay person this must seem like an awful lot of generators and it is, now divide this into the numbers of building powered by these generators

🙂

The more wind the lower the cost of our Electric, heating and A/C bills from dirty fossil fuels!

They will be out far enough to be safe for wandering birds, plus a good place for shrimp and fishing?

New use for off shore wind farms Stanford state university researchers states that with thousands of turbines out there to reduce wind speed by up to 92 MPH and wind surge by some 79%

Offshore wind energy could power entire U.S. East Coast, Stanford scientists say

Some breezes are better than others; wind energy that peaks during times of high electricity demand is more valuable and can offset dirtier generation that runs only a few hours a day.

The researchers used a weather model to generate five years of hourly wind speeds at 90 meters above sea surface – the standard height of offshore wind turbines (the projection was validated against real data from offshore buoys and towers).

The team inserted about 140,000 wind turbines into their computer model, each capable of generating 5 megawatts of electricity – similar to windmills used in offshore wind farms in Europe – at various ocean depths and distances from shore, from Florida to Maine.
