America’s first offshore wind farm, the planned Cape Wind, now has a coastal Atlantic staging area big enough to handle construction of 130 massive turbines. Cape Wind Associates has signed a two-year $4.5M lease with the State of Massachusetts for a terminal in New Bedford harbor. Starting in January, Cape Wind will use the harbor site to assemble materials that will then be ferried 30 miles to the 24-square-mile farm site in Nantucket Sound. Also, this May the U.S. Department of Energy awarded money to three offshore wind farm demonstration projects planned for New Jersey, Oregon and Virginia.
