Money from wind farm is not free money to improve state park  

Credit:  The News Journal | Jan. 2, 2020 | www.delawareonline.com ~~

In response to the writer who thought the $18 million offered was free money: The offer that Orsted made to DNREC is not free money.

It is a bribe in order to use state parkland to build an industrial electric substation on land that DNREC is supposed to protect. Are we supposed to look the other way and pretend that there won’t be any environmental impacts?

The area that will house this beautiful substation is on the shore of the Little Assawoman Bay. Normally wetlands are protected.

As far as Fenwick Island State Park being decrepit, that’s one writer’s view. Another view might be that it is as close to a natural ocean and bayfront habitat as you can get in Delaware and should be left alone. There are other parks that are more commercialized like the Indian River Inlet State Park if that is what you wish to experience.

As noted in a public meeting with Orsted, as the wind farm expands to the northwest following the shipping channel they will need to build out additional infrastructure to carry the power.

Maybe they’ll look to Rehoboth Beach as a possible expansion site.
