Can't find any info on whether this impacts navigation/fishing activities.

Bureau of Offshore Energy Management appears to be a new layer of bureaucracy. Just swell.......

From what little I've read about those things, the maintenance costs more than the value of the power they produce.

They also give them special permits to kill the crap out of endangered and protected birds.

They have the most toxic lubrication pkg you could use
They can't keep them running on land so how are they better in the ocean??

This is one of those deals if you build it Uncle Sam will flip the bill or give you credit does GE come to mind.
With NG so cheap wind does not come into play.
Solar is the cheapest but if you put a private grid into place the rules are wrote to keep you from selling it to the electric company or going neutral on a bill. Many country's allow neutral billing or selling so you might see hole city's full of panels.
Not enough money to go out their without a catch. It's like the ethnol plants plants and subsidized gas. The ones building the plants cared nothing about the fuel they just wanted the money to build the plant. Same happens with solar farms cut the tax breaks out they stopped building.
