COOS BAY, Ore. -- A Washington company intends to moor five wind turbines off the Oregon coast, and hopes the project dovetails with a separate proposal for liquefied natural gas.
The Coos Bay World reported reluctant fishermen on the southern Oregon coast agreed after six months to support Seattle-based Principle Power's plans for a 30-megawatt wind energy flotilla off the waters of Coos Bay.
The company plans to anchor its proposed wind farm beyond the three-mile limit, outside of state jurisdiction and under federal law. The wind energy platforms would be anchored in about 1,000 feet of water.
The company received a $4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy in March. The initial grant could expand to as much as $47 million.
The port has named the endeavor Project Effectuate.
