Wind Power Reaches Cape Cod Power Grid

Electricity from an offshore wind farm south of Martha's Vineyard is now reaching the New England power grid.

Project developer Avangrid confirms that five megawatts of power from a single turbine are now being sent to the grid through a connection in Barnstable.

Once complete, the wind farm will feature more than 60 turbines, creating enough electricity to power around 400 thousand homes.
