On December 12, Rhode Island’s Block Island Windfarm went online, marking the debut of America’s first offshore wind farm. While offshore wind energy projects are popping up all over the world, some say this could wind up being the only one of its kind in the US, as the incoming presidential administration may work hard to block renewable energy projects from becoming reality, in favor of coal and oil industry ventures.
