Cape Wind wins final federal permit

Submitted by admin on Monday, 10 January 2011No Comment

BOSTON—the nation’s first offshore wind farm has won its final federal permit, 10 years after the project was proposed.

On Friday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency gave the Cape Wind project a permit for emissions during construction. that came a day after Cape Wind was given a permit by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for work in navigable federal waters and to ensure it’s complying with the clean Water Act.

Neither decision was a surprise, but the permits allow the company to start construction. the company plans to start building a 130-turbine wind farm in Nantucket Sound by the end of the year and begin producing power by early 2013.

Cape Wind was proposed in 2001 and approved last year by U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar.

The project still faces numerous lawsuits from opponents.1294639247 40 Cape Wind wins final federal permit
