UK Greenlights World's Largest Offshore Wind Farm

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

In a major advance for the country's green energy future, the United Kingdom on Tuesday approved the construction of the world's largest offshore wind farm.

The Dogger Bank Creyke Beck wind project will include up to 400 wind turbines and will be situated 131 km (roughly 81 miles) off the coast of Yorkshire, England. Compromising two seperate wind farms, the project boasts an overall maximum capacity of 2400MW, which officials estimate will generate enough electricity to power almost 2 million homes.
