Deepwater Wind has proposed the largest offshore wind farm in the United States to install about 200 wind turbines off the coast of Rhode Island, which generate about 1,000 megawatt wind energy, enough to power several states along the East Coast .
Deepwater Wind LLC, which recently moved its headquarters from New Jersey to Providence, said that wind turbines would be barely visible from shore, as stated in the application being submitted.
According to the request to lease the installation site, the Department of Interior made the United States, the project would cost an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 million dollars, and the installation work of the wind farm would begin in 2014.
Deepwater Wind says its plans is the installation of a submarine network connecting transport from eastern Long Island to southern New England, with capacity to supply wind power to the states of Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Connecticut .
The company claims that the size of the wind project means that the prices of energy sold would be lower compared to other wind farms have been proposed.
“We made a lot of engineering to this project and we are sure we can come at a cost that is much less than what has been discussed so far,” said William Moore, CEO of Deepwater Wind LLC ..
The federal government this year approved the Cape Wind offshore wind farm, a wind farm of 130 Siemens wind turbines planned for installation in Nantucket Sound. The starting price is 18.7 cents per kWh, roughly double the current price of conventional sources.
Electric vehicle with lithium batteries do not emit CO2 or damage the environment if the electricity comes from renewables such as wind, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal or thermal. Wind turbines can supply electricity to electric vehicles in the future will also serve to store and regulate the electricity intermittent wind energy sector.
