New Reefs off Flagler Beach Florida


I am sure that not many of my followers have ever traveled route 1A to and through Flagler Beach in Volusia County Florida?

I am also sure that each of you have or should have a route 1A of your own?

Although this is a trip well worth taking if you want to see the ocean and her beauty because on your left you can also see the actions along the St Johns River.


However, this is not the only reason for this post today.


Let’s talk Wind, Solar and Waves after you see some of the sites?


Shores along Volusia county will soon get seven (7) more reef to go along with the two (2) already down and providing a home for fish and divers to enjoy.


Volusia officials thrilled with new reef additions.

Florida Fish and Wildlife is giving a grant for $60,000 to build more reefs along Flagler Beach Shores.

Every day 24/7 one travels this road it is windy, the days are sunny even in our winter and the moon shines on most of our nights.


That my friends is called “Alternative Energy” provided to all of Florida from “Mother Earth” “Free of Charge!”

All we Floridians need to do is tap into this free energy?

So why not do so while we are installing our artificial reefs along our shores?

First should be the Wind Generator with cables under the water then build the reefs all around it and solar panels top and on the pole?

The output of a wind turbine depends on the turbine’s size and the wind’s speed through the rotor.

Wind turbines manufactured today have power ratings ranging from 250 watts to 7 MW.

An onshore wind turbine with a capacity of 2.5 MW can produce more than 6 million kWh in a year

enough to supply 1,500 average EU households with electricity!


A “Wind Farm in Florida” can produce so much free energy that Florida could sell power out to other states?


Same thing with California and Washington?

  2. I lived at Daytona Beach from age 3 to 9 so I know the area. By now, though, It must be completely different now. Back then there was no wind or solar and power was not expensive like now. You are right, we need to go to wind and solar energy, and we need to continue to search for other alternative energy sources. I read a day or so ago about a mayor that uses toilets flushing to create power That is the kind of inventiveness we need.
