Tested Podcast logo

Anyone who’s been to the Outer Banks knows that it’s windy out there. Like, really windy. That wind might be rough for beachgoers or kayakers, but it's great for producing electricity through offshore wind farms.

Host Celeste Gracia talks with Katharine Kollins, president of the Southeastern Wind Coalition; Kerri Allen of the North Carolina Coastal Federation; Harvey Seim, professor of marine sciences at UNC-Chapel Hill; and Jennifer Mundt of the North Carolina Department of Commerce about where things stand with offshore wind energy development in North Carolina, and why some say the state is lagging behind.
