I look forward to the time when I will be sailing or taking the ferry to Nantucket and being able to see the towers up close and admire their grandeur and know that the people of Cape Cod are benefiting from some clean power and that we are leaders in the effort to help our neighbors and our country make the US a cleaner, healthier and a better place to live.

Rick Mattila and Rick Heller Op Ed in Boston Globe promoting offshore wind power Monday, December 31, 2012
"...The good news is that many of the pieces are falling into place, including here in the Bay State; after 10 years of debate, the Cape Wind project is on track to cross the finish line in 2013. In addition, the federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has identified two formal wind energy areas off our coast covering nearly 1,000 square miles, with leases to be offered for sale by competitive auction in 2013. As a result of these positive signs of progress, the Commonwealth is moving forward with plans for a new marine terminal in New Bedford to support the delivery, assembly, and installation of offshore wind energy projects."
