Does California have any plans to have offshore wind farms?

    Stanford University completed some research on the viability of offshore wind farms in California about two years ago, but no plans have been made to build a wind farm near the California coastline. Stanford’s research showed the state’s northern coastline would be the most viable to harvest wind energy and suggested that as much as 5 percent of the state’s energy costs could be provided for via an offshore wind farm in that region. Southern California was ruled out due to the lack of strong winds in summer. The state’s budget issues remain a hurdle as the cost of the windfarm construction could be quite high. Just this week, Rhode Island announced it would be the first U.S. state to finish construction of an offshore wind farm.
