Speaking to reporters and media interests, including the Offshore Energy Law Blog, following today's consultations concerning the Cape Wind offshore energy project in Nantucket Sound, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar said that he does not view whether or not the Cape Wind project is built as determinative for the U.S. offshore wind industry. Salazar also highlighted two difficult challenges facing the project: impacts on cultural and archeological resources and impacts on the view sheds from land. The Secretary confirmed that if Cape Wind decides to move its proposed wind farm to a different location, then the company would have to file a new application with MMS for the project.
