More Wind Power Ready For Cape Consumption

A second wind project off the coast of Martha's Vineyard has completed another step towards operational status.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management announced on Monday that it has completed an environmental review of the proposed New England Wind project.

Formerly known as Vineyard Wind South, the project is envisioned for 20 nautical miles off the southwest corner of the Vineyard.

The 129 wind turbine generators are expected to produce 26 hundred megawatts of electricity, which could power more than 900-thousand homes.

A public comment period is set to be announced by the end of this week.
