Company Files Revised Application for Offshore Windmill Farm
, Associated Press, July 10, 2003 reports on a permit application filed by Winergy with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for construction of an offshore wind farm off the coast of Virginia. According to the article, the 50 windmill project would be designed as follows

Each windmill would stand 400 feet above the mean water level in a 25-square-mile area running from one to three nautical miles off Smith's Island near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The project as a whole would generate 560 megawatts of electricity during peak production times.

The Corps has scheduled a public hearing on the project for Aug. 19 at Northampton High School in Eastville.
