Maybe wind turbines should be built on shore and directly pump water into a nearby reservoir atop a hill or mountain, and electricity would be generated on demand via hydro releasing the water back to the ocean.
If you're building on shore you will have tides. Use tidal power to raise to a lower reservoir and then windpower to lift it higher.
