FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEWARK, D.E. – The Caesar Rodney Institute (CRI), with its Energy Expert David T. Stevenson, has spearheaded the fight against offshore wind turbines since 2017 to protect Delaware Beaches. Today, CRI announces the release of a shocking video that depicts and uncovers the truth behind how the wind turbines will look off Delaware beaches after construction, who will benefit (not Delawareans), and the marine life it will forever harm.
“The video details why visible wind turbines pose many serious and avoidable risks. Ocean wind turbines are not needed to reach renewable energy goals, which are better and safer met by land-based turbines.” - John Toedtman, CRI's Executive Director
“There are better clean energy solutions than placing a highly visible industrial park off our Delaware beaches. Offshore wind costs four times more than other options, causes great environmental damage, and threatens our beach economy.”- David T. Stevenson, Director, CRI's Center for Energy & Environmental Policy

BACKGROUND: In 2018, Save Our Beach View (www.SaveOurBeachView.com) was formed to educate Delaware beach property residents about the state of Maryland's plans to construct offshore wind turbines off the coast of Delaware beaches, but the energy produced by these wind turbines is for Maryland residents and not Delaware. Save our Beach View is a project of the Caesar Rodney Institute and is a member of the American Coalition for Ocean Protection (ACOP).
