Shipwrecked: America’s Offshore Wind Industry Being Crushed By Rising Construction Costs

A lot of people worry about decommissioning those things once they are out of service or it has become clear how useless they are. There won’t be any money left for that job so that’s something else that will fall onto taxpayers. That being said, offshore wind farms will be easier to get rid of as once the constant fight against corrosion in a marine environment stops, the elements will make short work of those contraptions. That said, we will have to update our marine maps as the stumps will be navigation hazards for some time to come. Wind energy remains a hazard long after its demise.
