• North Myrtle could start using wind for energy


    SOUTH CAROLINA - North Myrtle Beach could soon start using its coastal breezes to produce energy.

    A federal program could use two tracts of land along the coast to develop wind farms.

    Town officials have exactly four weeks to submit proposals for the farms.

    Roughly 33 percent of the offshore wind power potential of the entire East Coast is estimated to be in the Carolinas.
