Cape Wind: Heat lifts turbine productivity

By Patrick Cassidy

HYANNIS — Hot air rises.

Hot air rising over land that produces strong sea breezes offshore is one reason for the higher production levels, according to a report released Monday by the project's developer, Cape Wind Associates of Boston.
