Many cities of the world are doing a lot of work to enforce the green energy efforts, reduce environmental pollution and keep the atmosphere healthy. However, the front-runner and leading state in the world of green conscious people is California. Many of the citizens and immigrants living in the state are looking forward to the huge upturn of offshore wind farms beginning to sprout in the waters of the California.
Although a lot of these green energy sources are from different parts of the oceans, there are many parts of the ocean that are restricted and not allowed for anyone to access, or perform any kind of experiments at. Wind farms are not allowed in the coastlines of the state, as an order from the Navy of the United States. The coastlines of Los Angeles and San Francisco are totally off limits.
However, the greens energy sources are not quite open to all parts of the water. The Navy of the United States have decided that a large part of the California coastline would have to be beyond civilian accessibility. So, any kind of access that might affect the place—particularly the ocean around Los Angeles and San Francisco. Many of the authorities are beginning to make moves and take action towards freeing up these places.
Along the East Coast of the United States of America, a number of offshore wind farms exist. However, they are nothing like the ones in California. The ones in the East Coast are easier to anchor. They can stand and survive at the shallow waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In California, it won’t be that easy. There is a wild depth at the continental shelf in California. If there are any kind of wind farms, they will have to float on the waters. If they cannot float, something will have to hold them to the base of the ocean for them to flourish.
While scientists are spectators might continue to strategize and fantasize, no one can move near the waters in California. They will have to wait till the government of the United States of America and the US Navy grants them a pass to use some specific locations in the oceans. It was only last year when the US navy had released a map with a color code, showing the areas that could be cultivated, the parts that could only be cultivated for some specific purposes and the areas that were restricted. They were represented in green, yellow and red respectively. After taking a proper check at the map’s layout, it was discovered that the whole of the coast of California was marked red. Apparently, the NAVY always have some important missions above and beneath the sea.
The whole of the south was marked red, but the northern parts have more potential to be able to have wind farms grown in them. While everyone is optimistic about the Navy’s response, there is a huge chance that it might not be favorable.
