Cape Wind Project Cleared by FAA
August 17, 2012
CapeCodOnline: Cape Wind cleared its last bureaucratic hurdle Wednesday when the Federal Aviation Administration released its finding that the project poses no hazard to planes.
The finding came after a court-mandated re-evaluation of possible safety hazards the 130-turbine project poses to planes and a GOP inquiry into whether the FAA’s initial approval in 2010 was the result of political pressure from the left.
“(The FAA’s) aeronautical study revealed that the structure does not exceed obstruction standards and would not be a hazard to air navigation,” the latest FAA determination reads.
