The nation’s first offshore wind farm needs buyers for half its power, and one of its best prospective customers has been reluctant to sign on.

Those goals include developing offshore wind. The state has also requested a stay in the merger proceedings that could lead to a merger-killing delay.

About WATD-FM WATD is one of those seemingly impossible ideas which actually worked and has now endured for over three full decades. The idea for the station in Marshfield emerged as the result of a prospecting trip Carol Ebert Perry and Edward Perry made in December of 1972.
