Wind farms off Cape Cod have been in the news a lot lately. Cape Wind's hopes of seizing Horseshoe Shoals are almost completely dead, and Denmark-based DONG Energy is proposing a 1,000 megawatt project 15 miles south of Martha's Vineyard.

The folks at Deepwater Wind have encountered all sorts of adventures in their efforts to install tubines off Block Island. Everything from humpback whales stopping construction, to huge barges breaking loose.
This is great stuff!:
