Cape Wind gets final green light
The Federal Aviation Administration reaffirmed its decision that the offshore wind energy project known as Cape Wind would not pose a hazard for airplanes.
The Federal Aviation Administration completed a court-mandated re-evaluation of Cape Wind, a planned development of 130 offshore wind turbines in Nantucket Sound, affirming its earlier decision that the project poses no hazard to aviation.
The Cape Cod Times reports it is the final bureaucratic hurdle for the controversial project. The re-evaluation followed an inquiry driven by Republican politicians, into whether the FAA's initial 2010 approval for Cape Wind came as a result of political pressure from Democrats.
Cape Wind cleared its last bureaucratic hurdle Wednesday when the Federal Aviation Administration released its finding that the project poses no hazard to planes.
