California 100 to 150 MW of floating wind proposed

The main reason I’m highlighting this is because its California. And if California ends up going in big on off-shore wind power – that’s going t0 be a great thing. For a first, the East Coast totally beat Cali to a renewable technology – with many GW of offshore in the plans in Mass, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and more – and of course with the U.S.’s first offshore plant at Block Island, Rhode Island.

A report from NREL put out the image below, suggesting California had greater than 17GW of realistic wind potential – while other suggest a potential of 200GW when considering up to 1000M of depth (and 1.5 TW in water deeper than 1,000M).
