Offshore wind farm projects have finally been receiving approval in the U.S., but none have started construction yet. A 25-MW project planned for off the coast of Atlantic City could step up and break ground first if approval comes in March.
The developers of the project, Fisherman's Energy of Cape May, have announced that they're ready to start construction in the fall if approval is given from the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. The five-turbine wind farm will be capable of powering 10,000 homes and could be finished and feeding electricity to the grid by Labor Day 2013.
The Atlantic City project could be the first constructed of a series of wind farms planned as part of the East Coast wind corridor, stretching from Virginia to New York City and with major financial backers like Google and grants from the federal government.
