How is building a wind farm a race?

March 25, 2011

Gov. Martin O'Malley's aide Joseph C. Bryce says that Maryland is in a race with other states to host offshore wind farms ("O'Malley wind plan meets resistance," March 24). How is this a race? What does the winner get? The "losers" will gain a lot of free experience, but I fail to see the advantage of being first. What's the rush, isn't there enough wind for all? There certainly is in Annapolis!
