The Cape Wind Project was the first offshore wind energy project proposed in the United States and it is now the first such project to file a final environmental impact document. Cape Wind President Jim Gordon stated, “We hope this filing brings the public benefits of cleaner air, greater energy independence and new jobs closer to becoming a reality for the citizens of Massachusetts.” The MEPA Office will take public comments on the FEIR for 30 days, beginning today and continuing through March 22.
