Spain Passes Law Legalizing Offshore Wind Farms

Spain -- the world's second leading producer of wind power -- has passed a new law allowing wind parks to be built off its coast. It is predicted that the offshore wind parks will generate between 2,000 and 3,000 megawatts (MW) of electricity by 2020. That would represent a major contribution to Spain's future wind power production.

Meanwhile in the U.S., we stand idly by and watch as the world erects offshore wind facilities off their coasts.
