Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the US, Hoover Dam's output is 2080 MW, compared to 300 MW by the Thanet Offshore Wind Farm. That means it would take a wind farm seven times larger than Thanet to achieve the output of Hoover Dam.

I'm wondering why we are not hearing about projects such as Thanet in the US. Would it be cost effective to build such a large wind farm, and if so, what is holding up the US or even private investors?
