Yes. The 130 turbines would supply 10% of Southern Massachusetts’ estimated energy needs in 2013 and 1% of New England’s, saving the region billions of dollars over a 25-year period. The wind is good and the space is available. The controversy is not whether the spot would be successful but rather over whether it hurts a historic view and disturbs marine navigation.

Also, Cape Cod is a popular tourist destination. People go to Cape Cod to escape from buildings and structures and enjoy undisturbed nature. Government officials must be sure not to be short sighted in allowing wind turbines to be put up everywhere, or else it could negatively impact Cape Cods natural beauty (and subsequently its tourism).
