Offshore wind farms in Mass

Some good news for wind energy fans. The Sate has designated certain area's off our coast to build wind farms. The plan allows for 266 wind turbines, 166 in two areas for commercial farms and 100 more turbines up and down the coast in smaller community projects.

Despite the now recognized request by two Indian tribes to prevent wind farms on their sacred grounds, which now are under water, the Feds have said they will bring all parties to the table in Washington next week and hammer out a compromise. If that can't happen, the feds are ready to pull the national park status of the waters off Cape Cod.

The Indians want clear sight to the horizon and now that the Park Service has designated Nantucket Sound as a national historic site, fisherman, ferries and even builders who build on land near the ocean, could be stopped in their tracks.

They must find a solution to these continued delays and soon.
