Rally to Save Cape Wind! Saturday, February 28th on Boston Common at 1 pm

  • 23 Feb 2015
Event Description

Join the Better Future Project Saturday to call on Marcy Reed, President of National Grid in MA, to reinstate the contracts with Cape Wind and invest in wind turbines, not gas pipelines.

For Massachusetts to get all power from renewables, as much as 55% of our electricity will need to come from offshore wind. Cape Wind's proposed 130 turbines are a key first step.

The Cape Wind project met obstacle after obstacle, and by late 2014 construction seemed imminent. Then, on January 7, 2015, National Grid and NSTAR announced they were planning to back out of their commitments to buy the energy produced by Cape Wind. The ultimate cause? Relentless lawsuits financed by oil billionaire Bill Koch.
