Wanted: Buyer for controversial Cape Wind energy

Jan 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: Wind

BOSTON — Cape Wind has outlasted a decade of government review, a slew of court brawls and fierce opposition from mariners, fishermen, Indian tribes and Kennedys just to win the right to sell its wind-fueled electricity.

Now, all it needs are customers.

Last month, the nation’s first offshore wind farm nailed down its first buyer when the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities approved a deal that sees Cape Wind selling half its power to National Grid, the state’s largest electric utility.

But the other half of the Cape Wind project’s electricity remains available with no obvious takers, raising the possibility of a smaller project with pricier power.
