I've been checking around on the sudden and unplanned shutdown of the Block Island windmills. Many local reporters in the region believe that there's more going on there and that this is not routine. I've unsuccessfully tried speaking with anyone that would go on the record.
They did shut them down suddenly at the end of July and said they will be down a few weeks.
The offshore wind farm has into problems in the past. In 2019, an undersea electric cable became exposed at Crescent Beach, which unnerved residents.
It's issues like these that trouble me. My fear is the day will come when the oceans are littered with these monstrosities. I'm all for clean energy, just not at the cost of our beautiful oceans.
