WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Our state may soon be home to off shore wind farms. That’s according to Mac Montgomery, who volunteers with the North Carolina Sierra Club for offshore wind.

He plans to give a formal presentation to New Hanover County Commissioners and Wilmington City Council next week about the positive impacts wind energy could have in our area. He says it’s not a matter of if wind farms begin to pop up offshore our coast, but when.

“Its our belief that things are happening in Raleigh and in Washington and the results of what’s happening in energy development, renewable energy and energy as we know it are going to impact our communities,” said Montgomery

Montgomery says North Carolina has the greatest potential for wind energy out of anywhere on the east coast.
