Putting wind generators on farms is not optimal...unless you design for "high-altitude" wind power generation (the wind is always blowing at 2,000 ft.) , and off-shore wind is the next best place to get "reliable" power from the wind.

America's … [Read more...] about The Rise of Off-Shore Wind Power
