Just read an article how the contractors have provisions regarding being able to use the best available technology at yhe time of construction. Apparently the 2megawatt windmills (old tech) are 200ft tall. (Block Island) The new 11 megawatt towers are 500ft tall!
For the new towers to not be seen from shore, they would need to be 35miles out.
The footprint is looking much bigger now!!!!!
Just think of how many more birds will be chopped up with those big ones.
