Cape Wind’s feeling Blue  

The Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce will host a speaker from Blue H USA, which hopes to build a floating deepwater wind energy installation south of the Islands, at its members breakfast forum June 12 at 7:30 a.m. at the Cape Codder Resort & Spa in Hyannis.

In response to an inquiry, Mark Rodgers, Cape Wind’s communications director, said he recalled being invited to make a five-minute presentation to the Chamber’s executive committee way back in 2001. The next week, the Chamber came out against the project.

And by the way… there was no breakfast for the Cape Wind contingent.

Alliance questions project’s cost

Quoting a Wall Street Journal report that Royal Dutch Shell has withdrawn from “the world’s largest planned offshore wind installation” in England, the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound continues to batter Cape Wind over the rising cost to build and operate the proposed 130-turbine project in Nantucket Sound.

The Alliance is calling for an independent study of Cape Wind’s projected impact on local electricity rates.

In a related matter, Alliance CEO Glenn Wattley announced that Prof. Richard Vietor has revised his Harvard Business School case on the Cape Wind project to include an economic analysis from the recently-released draft Environmental Impact Statement.

According to Wattley, the case now states that offshore wind costs would be significantly higher than those for land-based wind projects.
