Major US offshore wind farm built off Mass. Coast

Spurred by the impending expiration of a federal tax credit that could be worth $780 million,Cape Wind, the long-sought giant wind farm off the Massachusetts coast, is apparently now under construction. It’s the first major offshore wind farm to begin construction in the United States, but its long-term fate hardly seems a done deal.

First US offshore wind turbines - spinning in ’14?

While Cape Wind in Mass. may claim to be the most famous offshore wind farm project in the US, Block Island (in RI) might before long hold a more meaningful title -  the first offshore wind farm in the US.
