Study Says Wind Mill Electricity Prices Could Compete with Current Costs 

Some researchers say the cost of electricity from wind mills off Maine’s coast can be competitive with current costs to deliver power.A federal-government sponsored study says it seems possible to hit a target of 8 to 10 cents per kilowatt hour for energy delivered from offshore turbines.The study says building floating platforms on land and towing them out to deep water is cheaper than building the turbine towers out to sea.
