Marking a massive decision in the history of sustainable energy infrastructure, the United Kingdom's government has agreed to move forward with 'Hornsea Project Two,' the second stage of the world's largest offshore wind farm. The project, once completed, will consist of 300 wind turbines that will cover 300 square miles in the North Sea off the coast of England.

According to Digital Trends, the massive clean energy project will have an energy capacity of 1.8 gigawatts, which would provide power to as many as 1.8 million homes across the UK. Hornsea Project Two has been contracted out to Denmark's Dong Energy, and the company estimates that it could create more than 2,500 jobs in the wind energy industry.

From both an economic and an environmental standpoint, Hornsea Project Two's approval seems to be a success.
