Fenwick committee urges opposition to wind farms

Please note Nov. 20 on your calendars as an important deadline for sending comments to the Bureau of Ocean Energy (BOEM) regarding proposals for the US Wind Marwin and Momentum Wind offshore wind projects: While it may be difficult for individuals to make their voices heard, BOEM’s hearing does provide an official forum for everyone to express opinions. As such, we urge you to record your opposition for a proposed project that will essentially destroy Delaware’s marine environment and coastal . . . Complete story »

Is offshore wind in Maryland, Delaware in peril after New Jersey troubles?

Following Tuesday’s announcement Ørsted was pulling out of a billion-dollar New Jersey-based offshore wind project, speculation has increased about the future of Eastern Shore turbine construction. What happened with wind projects in New Jersey? In a statement this week, the company said it will cease development of the Ocean Wind 1 and 2 projects for supply chain issues, which were supposed to be built off the coast of Atlantic City. The developments were regarded as New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy’s . . . Complete story »

U.S. offshore wind plans are utterly collapsing

Offshore wind developer Ørsted has delayed its New Jersey Ocean Wind 1 project to 2026. Previously, the company had announced construction of the project would begin in October 2023. The delay was attributed to supply chain issues, higher interest rates, and a failure so far to garner enough tax credits from the federal government. For now, they are not walking away from all their U.S. projects but will reconsider long-term plans by the end of this year. Ørsted’s stock price . . . Complete story »

We oppose Delaware offshore wind because it’s expensive, unreliable, and threatens the natural environment

In a recent announcement, NJ League of Conservation Voters’ Executive Director, Ed Potosnak accused the Caesar Rodney Institute of running a “misinformation campaign” against offshore wind. In the spirit of information, we visited the NJ League of Conservation Voters’ Gala website so that we could understand who was backing their organization. We found that Mr. Potosnak shouldn’t be throwing stones when it comes to casting aspersions about funding and influence. We found that Mr. Potosnak’s organization has impressive backing from . . .

Pentagon sounds alarm over Biden plan for offshore wind sites

The Pentagon is sounding alarms over Biden administration plans to advance offshore wind projects along the central Atlantic US coast, warning that almost all of the new terrain eyed for development conflicts with military operations. Maps shared with industry stakeholders and seen by Bloomberg News show vast red areas that the Navy and Air Force have deemed “highly problematic,” covering prime real estate the Interior Department last year earmarked for leasing off the coasts of North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and . . .

U.S. Wind rep tells Bethany officials about local benefits of wind power

At last Friday’s Bethany Beach Town Council meeting, local officials and 12 residents asked the age-old question “What’s in it for me?” While wind-energy projects offshore of Ocean City, Md. – including the U.S. Wind MarWin project – are now in final federal review to power 80,000 homes in Maryland, it’s the Bethany Beach area in Delaware that will carry the electrical load for its neighbor. According to BOEM testimony and a presentation requested by Bethany Beach Mayor Rosemary Hardiman, U.S. Wind . . . Complete story »

Offshore wind farms could reduce Atlantic City’s surfclam fishery revenue up to 25%, Rutgers study suggests

New research from Rutgers University shows Mid-Atlantic surfclam fisheries could see revenue losses from planned offshore wind farms, at least in the short- to medium-term after the development takes place. The data is sure to fuel opposition from the fishing industry to the Biden administration’s rapid offshore wind development along the New York, New Jersey, and Delaware coasts. President Joe Biden has a goal of generating 30 gigawatts of wind energy by 2030 as part of his effort to tackle . . . Complete story »

Viewpoint: Offshore wind won’t reduce CO2 emissions

I continued my ongoing analysis of electric generation in the PJM regional grid where Delaware is a participant. I wanted to share the results of how much wind and solar power was generated in the region from 2019 to 2021. From 2019 to 2021, wind and solar power generation increased by 30% but had no impact on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2).PJM is the largest regional grid in the country, serving 65 million people in thirteen mid-Atlantic and Midwestern states generating . . .

US Wind eyes Delaware locations for bringing submarine powerlines ashore

It appears increasingly likely that underwater powerlines from Maryland offshore wind projects will come ashore in Delaware. Both the US Wind and Øersted’s Skipjack projects are moving in the direction of moving electricity generated from wind turbines 19 miles offshore to a grid connection in Delaware. Indian River Bay is a likely location with US Wind studying a Bay location, according to a filing with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Ørsted is also eying Indian River Bay after . . .

Fenwick council requests 30-mile exclusion for turbines

The Fenwick Island Town Council on Friday, March 4, approved a resolution requesting that a federal agency that issues licenses for offshore wind farms require that wind turbines be placed at least 30 miles from the shoreline. The council made the move following a presentation by Council Member Paul Breger, who chairs the Town’s Environmental Committee. The resolution supports federal adoption of a 30-mile “exclusion zone” for offshore wind turbines for the entire state of Delaware. Breger cited precedents set . . . Complete story »
