MA: Cape Wind Project Calls It Quits

After 16 years of resistance from the opposition, the developer of the proposed offshore wind farm, Cape Wind, has called it quits.

WATD news spoke with Audra Parker, President and CEO of the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, a group that fought fiercely against the project.

According to Parker, the 46 square acres in Nantucket Sound was picked for the project’s location solely because it would optimize their profits.

Cape Wind developer, Jim Gordon, rescinded the lease rights for the site after utility companies, National Grid and NorthEast utilities cancelled their contracts to buy electricity from the wind farm in early 2015.

Now the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound will work to get those Federal waters protected to stop any other company from potentially coming in.
