Nantucket Wind Energy

This is a great article about the first step for such a positive move in alternate energy sources… For more info, check out The Epoch Times link below. Here’s a brief blurb…

“Nantucket Sound will be the home of the nation’s first offshore wind farm, “Cape Wind.” The wind farm will be located in the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal, a multipurpose terminal, which will also house shipping and commercial activities.”

“In the first half of the 19th century, New Bedford produced the advanced fuel of the age—whale oil—and became known as ‘the city that lit the world,’” said Gov. Patrick in a press release. “Now, with this new terminal, and this first-in-the-nation project, New Bedford will once again begin to light the world, but this time with the clean, renewable energy resource of the 21st century—offshore wind.”
