Virginia secures research lease for wind energy

I hope this is not simply a good PR move for Dominion Virginia Power. But today's headline made me smile.

We know that the offshore wind is more than sufficient for a viable wind farm. Dominion can now move forward to erect two 6-megawatt test turbines 24 nautical miles off Virginia Beach. I hope to sail by them soon.

When we travel, I'm always taking photos of wind turbines when they unexpectedly pop up. Here are some in the Galapagos where I was amazed to see them.
