The U.S. Department of Energy gives a wind power project on the Oregon coast a boost.

 

The Department of Energy is providing a $4-million boost for a wind power project being conducted about 10 miles off the coast of Coos Bay, and most of Oregon's Congressional Delegation is celebrating the news. The funds were awarded to a Washington company; Principle Power, to aid their plans to install five semi-submersible floating foundations with six megawatt wind turbines. Oregon and Washington Senators and Representatives in May signed a letter promoting the work, citing state efforts to reduce carbon emissions and increase use of renewable energy.
