Nowadays, the world electricity requirements are increasing at alarming rate and the power demand has been running ahead of supply. It is widely recognized that the fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum and natural gas are presently being used for electricity. Therefore, in future it may not be sufficient to keep pace with ever increasing demand of the electrical energy of the world. The renewable energy can provide clean sources of energy which is reliable and secure to society. It is also far more economical than traditional energy resources, especially the costs of acquiring, maintaining, and operating centralized power stations and remediating their pollution can be avoided. Offshore wind turbine is one of the renewable energy. The turbines are designed to suit the particular fuel characteristics whereby before this a fuel used to turn a turbine, which drives a generator and feeds the grid. The single most important characteristics of a wind farm site is the wind speed and in the new millennium, the technology adoption of the offshore wind turbine is focus on the most effective ways to make very large turbines (European Wind Energy Association, 2009). In this case study Labuan, Sabah has been selected as the location to install the offshore wind turbines because of the geographical advantage of South China Sea. The technology is expected to provide the great power energy with least environment impact and high sustainability as it is located at the strong wind area where there are no terrain features, buildings or other obstruction to slow it down. The research used qualitative methods for both data collection and data analysis. This study proved that the application of offshore wind turbines in the South China Sea, Sabah conveys the energy complementary to fossil fuels and results the acceptance of Sabah residential towards the installation of offshore wind turbines. As a conclusion, the offshore wind turbines might become one of the main energy sources in Sabah. Thus, the application of offshore wind turbines to Sabah residential develops a lot of benefits to them and support Malaysian government goals which leading Malaysia to be more competitive in renewable energy generation while sustaining national economic growth.
