Dwarfing Cape Wind with a Patriot-sized wind farm

Take a look at the two areas above.

The top one represents Cape Wind, about which we’ve posted several times.

Now, a new area has been set aside for a wind farm which, according to a story in today’s Boston Globe, “could produce as much as 4,000 megawatts, 10 times as much electricity as the proposed Cape Wind project, which is slated to sprawl over 25 square miles. That is enough, they said, to power up to 70 percent of homes in Massachusetts.”

For now, we’d encourage you to stay tuned to EarthPM and our tweets, not much is known about this yet but it has the potential to be come a giant…er….bad word around here right now….a very large and patriotic (there we go!) way to generate power for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts!

And what a great way to employ hundreds or thousands of project managers and team members!
