This item is part of the Special Issue - 2018-06 - Offshore Wind, click here for more

Offshore wind is poised to take over parts of the East Coast, except Ocean City in Maryland. Citizens of the resort town are scared that the tourists will stop frequenting Ocean City, if ungainly wind farms dot the seascape. They don't want wind farms, at least, 30 miles out into the sea. This, despite generous offers of free electricity and community investments worth hundreds of thousands of dollars by utilities. Opposition by officials in Ocean City could prove to be a spanner in the works of the America's second-largest wind farm.
