Second-ever wind farm ready to come online

Recommended Posts

GreenTech Media reports today that Dominion Energy has both of the turbines in place for its Coastal Virginia pilot project and is ready to start generating electricity:



“It’s interesting that the only thing [Dominion] has demonstrated so far is they could construct it — they’ve done nothing related to operations yet. And yet that’s good enough for state politicians,” said Max Cohen, principal analyst at Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.

“They feel there’s enough from lessons learned in other states and from Europe’s experience to really go full steam ahead, without much operating steel in the water in the U.S. yet," Cohen said. "There’s a confidence that this industry can deliver."


How successful this project is may have a big effect on what happens next in offshore wind.
