The article reports on the plans of startup Grays Harbor Energy to seek permits and funding for the construction of towers off the coasts of six U.S. states to harness both wave and wind energy. Grays Harbor hopes to generate 1,000 megawatts of wind power and 100 megawatts of wave power for each of the seven sites it has planned for the waters off California, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. The company needs at least $28 billion to construct everything, according to Grays Harbor President Burt Hamner.
