Do Not Construct Wind Turbines Off the Shores of Ocean City, Maryland

Pertinent Facts


Eighty-six or more 900+ foot wind turbines to be built 11 nautical miles off the shores of OC

The Wind Turbine Company will construct a metrological tower.

The turbines will be visible - they are 65 stories high & twice as tall as any building in OC

This site has great information and links to all of the representatives we need to contact to let them know how we feel about the wind turbines in our view shed.

Our Demand

We are now totally against constructing any wind turbines off the shores of the East Coast.  There is only destruction and devastation when wind farms are constructed.  They kill birds, bats, bees, and insects.  They destroy the navigational systems of whales and dolphins, causing them to beach themselves and die.  They create infrasound which is harmful to saline and to human life.  They do not reduce CO2.  They use rare earth elements in their construction which are toxic.  Their blades are not recyclable.  They use a great amount of fossil fuels in their construction and their maintenance.  They are not a reliable source of energy.  There is nothing good about a wind turbine.

Turbine height compared to known tall objects

How tall are the wind turbines?

The wind turbines are 650 feet tall from the waterline to the tip of the blade.  They are twice as high as the tallest building in Ocean City, Maryland and the height of the Washington Monument.  They reach 65 stories high above the ocean water line.  Find more facts by clicking on the picture to the left.

Websites, rack cards, and billboards are expensive.  The money raised will go to getting the word out to the people who will then hopefully sign the petition.  We need as many signatures as we can get to let the representatives and powers that be know how we feel about the destruction of our cherished ocean view.
