BETHANY BEACH, Del. - Bethesda resident Jean Holland's dream of owning a home by the ocean had been fueled by the decades she and her family had vacationed in Bethany Beach. It was a dream she never thought would come true. "Then, I made some money in the stock market, and my aunt left me some," recalled Holland, who retired last year after 22 years working for Talbots Inc. "My financial consultant told me to go ahead and follow my dream." Knowing the importance of staying within a budget, Holland knew she couldn't afford an oceanfront home.

Similar proposals are pending for wind farms off Cape Cod, Mass., and Long Island, N.Y., but they have drawn protests and lawsuits from homeowners who say their water views would be defiled by the towers.
