A federal agency approved a construction and operations plan for the Cape Wind project off the Massachusetts coast, clearing the way for work to begin on America's first offshore wind farm as early as this fall, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced Tuesday.
"States up and down the East Coast are now looking to Massachusetts with envy as we launch this brand-new American industry," Mr. Patrick said.
In a statement, Gov. Deal Patrick said federal approval of the construction and operations plan meant the state was one step closer to benefiting from the clean energy and jobs that Cape Wind will produce.
