Offshore wind could provide energy when California needs it most, Cal Poly study says
So how can the state meet its goal of getting half its electrical power from renewable energy sources by 2030 when solar power production — which provides 22% of the state’s electricity — goes away with the sun? Researchers from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) have an answer: Offshore wind turbines floating in the Pacific Ocean off the Central Coast.
