Cape Wind Promises Benefits to the Community With Long Term Power Contract

This piece by Glenn Ritt of TownOnline.com (9/10/03) reports on a recent announcement by Cape Wind head Jim Gordon to sign contracts guaranteeing that the power generated by the proposed wind farm on Horseshoe Shoal would benefit Cape customers. Apparently, many project opponents have been concerned that power would be sold to the spot market at premium prices and benefit other consumers and the developers rather than Cape customers who bear the burdens associated with project siting. According to the article, Gordon's comments alleviate some of those concerns.
