Salazar to Decide On Planned Cape Cod Wind Farm

Wednesday, 13 Jan 2010 03:09 PM

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says he will decide by the end of April whether to approve a proposed wind farm off Cape Cod that has sparked a bitter, nine-year public fight.

Salazar met Wednesday with key players in Cape Wind's plan to build 130 turbines, each over 400 feet tall, in Nantucket Sound. The project would be located several miles from the Cape Cod shore, across a 25-square-mile swath of federal waters.

Opponents say it would be a hazard to aviation, harm the environment and mar historic vistas. Supporters say the project will provide cheaper energy, reduce pollution and create green jobs.
