"A Green Future Rises From the Sea"
Alex Steffen, 24 Dec 04

The UK's National Wind Power is building Britain's largest offshore windfarm yet:

"When the North Hoyle farm is completed at the end of the year it will provide power for 50,000 homes [60 MW] from its 30 turbines, each more than 100m tall. It will be unmissable from the tourist-packed beaches - a first model for how many stretches of the UK coastline will look by 2010."

Another proposed wind project would power 8% of Scottish homes. But not all is smooth sailing.

(PS: "A Green Future Rises From the Sea" -- God, I love that line: it's like something Nemo would yell from the deck of the Nautilus.)

(PPS: Worst renewable energy corporate name I've ever heard? Ecotricity, which is hard to parse and sounds disturbingly like "attrocity." I hope whatever brander came up with that one no longer works in the industry. Ugh. Perception, people, is the key to selling bright green lives. Names matter.)

I think I found a picture of the green future rising from the sea.
