The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the FAA’s approval of the Cape Wind project.

On October 28, 2011 the same Court remanded the FAA’s third Determination of No Hazard (DNH) back to the FAA to explain its decision. On February 9, 2012, the FAA issued a Public Notice of its reinstated project review. On August 15, 2012 the FAA issued its 4th DHN which project opponents challenged.

“The Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound, the Town of Barnstable and their financial backer—coal billionaire Bill Koch-- have failed yet again in their continuing campaign to use the courts to delay the financing of Cape Wind,” Cape Wind Communications Director Mark Rodgers said.

When completed, Cape Wind will be the first offshore wind farm in the U.S.

Cape Wind has more than 77 percent of power produced purchased by NSTAR and National Grid and recently announced that it will purchasing a marina on Falmouth harbor to serve as its maintenance and operations facility.
