Residents along Delaware’s beach areas don’t want a proposed offshore wind farm originally planned for Maryland.

84 percent of respondents to a survey on offshore wind are primarily opposed to two things, said the Caesar Rodney Institute’s David Stevenson.

“One is visible wind turbines off the shore, and the second is using Fenwick Island State Park as place for landfall for the transmission line, which would result (in) a large electric(al) substation being placed in the state park,” said Stevenson.

The Skipjack Wind Project, originally slated for Ocean City, Maryland, would use 850 foot-tall wind turbines, whose manufacturer said are roughly the size of New York City’s Chrysler Building.

Stevenson said also faces roadblocks from federal and state agencies for various reasons.
