Valuing the Visual Disamenity of Offshore Wind Power Projects at Varying Distances from the Shore: An Application on the Delaware Shoreline

Valuing the Visual Disamenity of Offshore Wind Power Projects at Varying Distances from the Shore: An Application on the Delaware Shoreline

Primary Country: United States
Ecosystem: shores (rocky & beaches)
Sample Value Estimates:
external cost for wind turbines located at
  1. $20.55: 0.9 miles offshore,
  2. $9.73 : 3.6 miles offshore,
  3. $1.08: 6 miles offshore,
  4. $0: 9 miles offshore; Respondents living on the ocean have external costs of for wind turbines located at
  5. $86.53: 0.9 miles offshore,
  6. $74.63: 3.6 miles offshore,
  7. $37.86: 6 miles offshore,
  8. $29.20: 9 miles offshore;
  9. $7.57 - $21.63 million/ mile: the external costs of moving the project outside the viewshed to 9 miles
Methodology: Choice Experiments
Region: Americas / Atlantic
Data source: NOEP
