Lots of federal attention and funding for offshore wind energy R&D #windenergy #maine

This is an interesting visit of an important cabinent-level official to Maine. The visit comes with some serious federal funding to help advance off-shore wind energy in the U.S.

Northeastern U.S. states are also working to streamline siting regulation for federal waters. If we can plop deep-water oil wells in federal waters without too much regulation why not wind energy -- ever here of a wind spill?  Here's the latest Sun Journal and AP report on Chu's visit to Orono.
