RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia will be the home of a new regional renewable energy office.
The news was contained in an announcement Tuesday that Gov. Bob McDonnell and governors of nine other East Coast states have joined to form a federal consortium to promote the development of offshore wind energy.
He says the development of offshore winds will help the state achieve that goal.
At least two energy companies have expressed interest in developing Virginia offshore tracts for wind turbines.
