Bottom lines: Economic benefits for wind energy plan fall short

In the Fishermen’s Energy case, homeowners and businesses would be the ones subsidizing the wind farm, through state agreements to buy the power at rates substantially above the cost of electricity in the open market. Wind turbines are a mature technology deployed all over the world, including much at sea, so the “demonstration” aspect of the project is not to show they work but to show sufficient subsidies and political gain can be lined up to do a lot more windmill development off the East Coast.

Could initial offshore wind projects crash New England's REC market?

The circular logic of REC market fundamentals would have low REC pricing jeopardizing future development. As renewable energy project profit margins get squeezed, fewer projects will be built and forward REC prices would rebound as forward supply tightens.The worry is that offshore wind projects could break this self-correcting market logic in the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL).

Cape Wind: An unsightly monument to political pull

Playing out in Massachusetts is a saga in which a private developer is using his political connections to trump the interests of state electric ratepayers - and in the process creating a precedent for much broader misuse of governmental power. The saga involves a court case in which state officials invoked an arcane provision of the U.S. Constitution to deny aggrieved ratepayers access to federal court.

Massachusetts' 2nd Big Dig: A port for offshore wind

New Bedford, MASSACHUSETTS -- During 2010 Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick announced he wanted to build an ocean wind turbine port named the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal.The proposed harbor terminal is located in one of the most toxic marine environments in the world. Governor Patrick estimated the South Terminal ocean wind turbine project at around 35 million dollars. The estimate was low because he was denied financing for an ocean wind turbine barge that asked taxpayers to build the 91 million dollar “ship to no where” for ocean wind turbine contractors.(Note: the R.D. MacDonald barge is being built in New Jersey)
