Ireland Takes Wind Power Plunge
The Irish Government has approved plans for the world's largest offshore electricity-generating wind farm, to be built on a sandbank in the Irish Sea south of Dublin.
When completed, the 200 turbines will produce 10% of the country's electricity needs.
The Marine Minister, Frank Fahey, said the 700-million euro ($630m) development would have three times the generating capacity of all current offshore wind farms worldwide.
