"The Biden administration and Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday announced a joint effort to bring offshore wind energy to the Pacific Ocean along the California coast.
Officials said they’ve designated two areas that can support sea-bound wind turbines: one 399-square-mile section northwest of Morro Bay and a smaller area off the North Coast near Eureka.
The two offshore wind zones — which would have turbines 20 miles from shore — could generate as much as 4.6 gigawatts of clean energy, or enough to power 1.6 million homes each year, officials said. People can only see a few miles out to sea, so the turbines would not be visible from shore."
