"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 by several other states in requesting similar limits from the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).

Breger said the state of New York requested a 20-mile zone after a 2015 study showing that 600-foot turbines “would dominate the horizon at 15 miles, negatively impacting the tourist industry by destroying ocean views.” He also cited concerns about impact of wind farms on the commercial fishing industry."
