We have heard about cattle farming, vegetable farming and chicken farming. But do we know what is offshore wind farming?

How can we farm the wind, someone will for sure ask me.

Yes, we people from a few countrie have farmed the wind. Not for food, but for energy, renewable form of energy.

They use windturbines strategically placed on the beach to harness the sea breeze to produce electricity.

We have a quite long beach. Why don't some entreprenaur do this here?

I have read in Yahoo that after years of court battle, finally the wind farmers win. They are building wind turbines at Cape Cod. Even the late Edward Kennedy vehemently protested against the idea.

He objected because, according to him, the turbines would spoil the seaview from his residence! How some people fight it out his right!

I don't know how much will such a project costs? Will someone expert chips in and tell us more about it?

I was thinking of wind and solar power when I was courting a piece of land mid-distance from Gua Musang and Kuala Kerai from Damai/SEDC. The land was however was found too hilly for cattle feedlot operation.
Damai was very nice and felt in love with our Eco- and Agro-tourism concept. They even allocate 130 acres in Kg Gaal, Pasir Puteh? to KopSdara 6774 (Wallang's and my mistakes here).
Suicidal as it seems, I tried to convince Kopsdara to allow me to continue the project but to no avail... Do theyt think I might want to swindle the ko-op?! even though I will cough all the money for the proposed Koop's share as well.
