Vineyard Wind Offshore wind project clears hurdle despite opposition

A project to create a wind farm off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard has cleared another hurdle. The Coastal Resources Management Council met for its semi-monthly meeting at Corless Auditorium at URI Bay Campus Tuesday night. The council voted to approve Vineyard Wind’s application for an 84-turbine project and a compensation package for fishermen. In reaction to the approval vote, Vineyard Wind CEO Lars Pederson said in a statement, “We thank the members of the CRMC, the Fisheries Advisory Board, and other fishermen for working with us to develop a package that will allow the offshore wind and fisheries industries to share the ocean resources and grow together.” >click to read<09:21
