Wind farm opposed by Wampanoag tribes secures more funds

Filed Under: Environment
More on: cape wind, energy, massachusetts, sacred sites, wampanoag
   

The developer of a wind farm opposed by two Massachusetts tribes secured $600 million in funding, putting the project closer to its $2.5 billion goal.

Cape Wind hopes to complete financing later this year. Construction could begin in 2015 and the project could start generating power in 2016.

The Obama administration approved Cape Wind over the objections of the Aquinnah Wampanoag Tribe and the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. The tribes say the placement of 440-foot tall turbines in Nantucket Sound will harm sacred and cultural sites.

The tribes also say the turbines will interfere with their view of the sun. The Wampanoag people are known as the People of the First Light.
