According to the Virginian Pilot: The US is closer to having off shore wind turbines. Gamesa from Spain has partnered with Newport News Energy, a subsidiarity of Newport News Ship Building and Huntington Ingles Industries, to build the first off shore wind turbine in the US. It will be located in the Chesapeake Bay off the shore of Cape Charles, VA which is located on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The prototype 5 MW (The paper said 5 kw — that's a typo) unit should be up and running by next year."
