The Cape Wind project has already passed regulatory muster by state, regional, and federal authorities. Recent findings by the Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board, ISO New England Inc., and the Army Corps of Engineers have supported Cape Wind as a sound development that should be allowed to proceed. The Massachusetts Governor - to whom the veto power would be given - as a known opponent of the project, and has no similar control over nuclear, coal, oil or other power generation projects. The turbines themselves are modern, clean and quiet, and at 5 to 9 miles from shore they will only appear as half-inch specks on the horizon. Especially in the Northeast, offshore wind holds the promise of supplying vast amounts of clean, renewable energy without additional air pollution from power plants. With the urgent threat of climate disruption, wind is an important source of clean renewable energy. The Cape Wind Project would be the first significant offshore wind project on the East Coast.
