Wind Energy-Governor's Coalitation

The Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish an Atlantic Offshore Wind Energy Consortium which promote and be responsible for developing the wind resources on the Outer Continental Shelf.    The interior's new Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will develop wind and other renewable energy resources. 

The governors of Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, and Virgina have created a "Wind Energy Farms" project for the Outer Continental Shelf.

Our nation needs to develop this renewable energy as there is a potenetial of generating 20% of our electricy by 2030.  In addition, there is a possibility that this would create a quarter of a million green jobs.
