Press Release - APNS Statement

January 7, 2014

The decision by NStar and National Grid to end their contracts with Cape Wind is a fatal or near-fatal blow to this expensive and outdated project. It's very bad news for Cape Wind, but very good news for Massachusetts ratepayers, who will save billions of dollars in electric bills.

For the fishermen, homeowners, towns, pilots, businesses, Native Americans, and visitors to Cape Cod who have opposed this project for 14 years, this news may finally mean the end of the long fight to save Nantucket Sound from industrialization.

It's time that Cape Wind's lease be revoked and Nantucket Sound be named a national marine sanctuary so that it is protected from future development and preserved for its rightful owners - the citizens of the United States.
