Cape Cod Community College to Discuss Offshore Wind

Cape Cod Community College will host a forum on Thursday as part of the “Big Choices” series.

The forum titled “Big Choices: Offshore Wind and Community Benefit” aims to accelerate community-based progress toward a sustainable energy future, according to Cape Cod.

President of the Board for Cape & Islands Self-Reliance Chris Powicki said, “Part of it is to get an update on where the state is in terms of offshore wind. What things it has been pursuing to help get projects in the water.”

Also, a topic of this forum will be the possibility of wind turbine development off Martha’s Vineyard.

“Recently, the state of Massachusetts and the federal government held an auction and two entities were awarded rights to develop projects south of Martha’s Vineyard in federal waters,” Powicki added.
