Allied Groups

Group fighting Cape Wind names new leader  

An energy industry expert has been tapped to become the new chief executive officer for the well-heeled and vocal anti-Cape Wind group, the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound.

Glenn Wattley has previously served as an energy consultant for the nonprofit group.

A coal industry insider, Wattley has been a frequent commentator on energy issues and utilities in the national media. He has commented publicly on the Cape Wind project on several occasions.

Wattley will take over the group’s CEO job from Charles Vinick on Tuesday, according to a statement released yesterday by the Alliance. The nonprofit was formed in 2001 to fight Cape Wind Associate’s proposed siting of 130 wind turbine’s on Horseshoe Shoals in Nantucket Sound.

Vinick will remain the group’s president and is expected to focus on a review of the project under way at the U.S. Department of Interior Minerals Management Service, the federal agency responsible for permitting the project, according to the statement.

The Minerals Management Service is scheduled to release a draft environmental impact statement on the project before the end of the summer.

The Cape Cod Commission, the regional planning agency for Barnstable County, will begin public hearings on the Cape Wind project at 5 p.m. Thursday at Mattacheese Middle School, Higgins Crowell Road, West Yarmouth.

Wattley is the managing director of West Bay Energy LLC, according to the statement from the Alliance.
