Cape Wind sees another victory over opponents

The Cape Wind offshore wind project in the Nantucket Sound off the coast of Massachusetts, USA, has seen another victory over opponents as the Massachusetts Supreme Court rules in its favour over the power purchase agreement (PPA) with the National Grid.

The Massachusetts Supreme Court has ruled that it was right by the state's public utilities department to deny a motion filed by the Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, against a 2009 PPA with the National Grid, according to Legal Newswire.

The National Grid has agreed to purchase half of the Cape Wind offshore wind farm's output – originally at US$0.207/kWh with an increase of 3.5% every year over 15 years. The new contract sets the starting price to US$0.187/kWh with the same escalation, although with a price cap of US$0.193/kWh.
