Wind farm won't interfere with radar

...Rick Lehner, a spokesman for the Missile Defense Agency, said the report clearly shows the Cape Wind project would have no affect on the Cape Cod-based PAVE PAWS operation.

"It's far enough away, so there is no issue with the radar beam," Lehner said.

The report is an analysis only, and the Defense Department is not a permitting agency for Cape Wind. It is the third such report to be issued, and each time the Cape Wind project has not been considered of concern to the PAVE PAWS radar.

"The report is clear," said Mark Rodgers, spokesman for Cape Wind Associates, the Boston-based company behind the project. "Cape Wind is outside of the wind turbine offset zone...it puts the PAVE PAWS issue to rest."Click here to read this article in the Cape Cod Times
