This story about a quirky entrepreneur pursuing the first large-scale, floating-turbine, offshore wind project on the Oregon coast reminded me of this story of a quirky entrepreneur pursuing a massive offshore wind project on the Delaware coast. Both faced stiff resistance — the latter eventually overcame it, the former, not yet.

Let us pause and give thanks for the quirky entrepreneurs, who do this kind of crazy sh*t first so the suits can follow in behind.

Thanks, quirky entrepreneurs!
