RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - An energy company developing the nation's first offshore wind project is among the growing number of companies with an interest in developing wind farms 27 miles off Virginia's coast.
Energy Management Inc. is the developer of the Cape Wind project in federal waters off Massachusetts' Cape Cod. Another energy company, Sea Breeze Power Corp., has also alerted the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management that it might join the bidding later this year to develop wind energy in the 133-square-mile area off Virginia Beach.
They join Dominion Virginia Power and seven other energy companies.
The development area was carved out of the Atlantic after extended negotiations with the Navy, Coast Guard and port officials, among others, that make this section of the coast 1 of the busiest on the eastern seaboard.
