Offshore Atlantic Transmission Line Moves Forward

A significant regulatory hurdle has been cleared in the development of wind power along the eastern shore of the United States. The Department of the Interior announced a finding of no competitive interest for the the best site levitra brand proposed Mid-Atlantic offshore wind energy transmission line.

The Atlantic Wind Connection has been under development for a couple of years with companies including Google, investment firm Good Energies, Japanese company Marubeni, and Maryland transmission company Trans-Elect sharing the investment. It will provide an electrical grid backbone with the capacity to transmit 7,000 meagawatts of cambridgeacademyaz.com off-shore wind power to the grid.

The proposed project is a high-voltage, direct-current subsea transmission system that would collect power generated by wind turbine facilities off the Atlantic coasts of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia. The first such offshore infrastructure proposed in the United States, the system's parallel, redundant circuits would total about 790 miles in length.

The Atlantic coast of the United States is a vast, as-yet untapped source of potential wind power. In addition to being resource-rich, it is also a heavily populated part of the country with a great deal of electrical demand, and wind farms along this part of the country can do a great deal of good. The next step for the project will be to evaluate potential environmental impacts.  Construction of the project is expected to take 10 years in total.

Beats me that they don´t invest more, so we can get off oil dependency completely. Infinite green energy at our disposal, just move forward and cheap viagra with fast delivery harvest.

A Big Revolution in Electricity Transmissions
written by Rebuilt Transmission, September 02, 2013
This project is clearly sending a message of the huge changes in reducing electricity shortage problems in coming years. I think, after 10 years (as expected to be completed the project) people will have a strong and reliable electric transmission backbone. I don't think electricity service will be free or not but surely it would be a great help.
