Offshore Wind Energy

There are at least two sides in the development of wind energy off Virginia’s coast. One side argues that readily available resources such as coal, natural gas, oil, and nuclear should be used since the development of wind energy is costly and will take time. The other side says the long-term benefits are well worth the effort since wind energy is much cleaner and has an unlimited supply. But as Virginia Public Radio’s Tommie McNeil explains, proponents also contend in a new report that the state may miss an opportunity to capitalize on wind development if Congress does not extend the Production and Investment Tax Credits by year’s end.
