Other facts about offshore wind
Do oceanside properties lose value with an offshore wind farm nearby?
Studies have found that property prices are generally not affected by offshore wind farms located far out at sea.
It concluded that having an ocean view including a wind farm had no significant impact on property prices, in comparison to having a sea view without a wind farm.
The study included two Danish offshore wind farms that are relatively close to the shore – Nystad at 2.2 miles and Rødsand 5.6 miles. In neither case were property prices affected by the presence of offshore wind farms.
By comparison, Skipjack Wind 2 will be at least 20 miles from the Maryland coast, making it less visible from oceanside properties.
