Seacoastonline reports on Dagher’s talk about offshore wind in York
Seacoastonline.com covered a talk by Habib Dagher at the York Community Auditorium. “I asked myself, what is the world going to look like for our children,” said the executive director of the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine. “The challenge is to work together to use offshore wind to electrify heating and transportation, and keep the money and jobs in Maine.” Dagher, who told the 130 community members that the need for clean, renewable energy is critical, works to develop deep-water floating wind turbines for placement in the Gulf of Maine. The evening’s presentation — “Our Path to Energy Independence: What Role Can Offshore Wind Play?” — was hosted by the citizen group York Ready for 100%. “Deep water wind turbines … will transform the way we heat our homes … and drive our cars,” he said.
