Cape Wind receives Mass DEP approval of undersea electric cables

Planet Ark reports that Cape Wind received permission yesterday to place its proposed undersea cables to transmit power to the mainland. The project would place 130 turbines about 4.7 miles off upscale Cape Cod and would supply enough power for about 400,000 homes.  Developers of the $1 billion project are still waiting on a composite state and local permit, as well as federal approvals by the U.S. Coast Guard, Department of the Interior and the Federal Aviation Administration, expected to be complete by March.Planet Ark link
