Wind power is one of the future sources of clean, alternative energy. According to the Department of Energy, nearly 16,000 offshore wind projects are under development. But the first offshore U.S. wind farm is nearly complete and about to begin providing power. Located off the shore of Rhode Island, five windmills will harness wind energy for the residents of Block Island and beyond. Reporter Jackie DeAngelis takes us to the project that could be the blueprint for similar wind farms across the country.
