The US is not a small player in wind energy, but, to date, offshore wind farms have not been built. This is soon to end however with plans for offshore sites in Delaware, Massachuchets and Texas. And California? It may soon follow.
We talk with Mike Dvorak, an aspiring wind engineer and scientist at Stanford University. Mike carefully researched available wind along the California coasts, and conducted feasibility studies for various potential sites. Cape Mendicino may well become California’s Cape Wind.
