Earlier this year, French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced a plan to build five wind farms off the western coast of France, one of them off the Normandy beaches of Juno and Omaha, stormed by Allied troops on D-Day.
Work is to start in 2015. The 525-foot turbines are to be erected about seven miles from the coast.
