The Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board has voted unanimously to grant Cape Wind a certificate of environmental impact and public interest, which combines all state and local permits and approvals into one composite certificate.

"Today's vote marks not just a successful conclusion to a seven-year state regulatory review of the Cape Wind project, but the beginning of a new era of clean energy jobs and renewable power from the endless wind resources off our shore," says Jim Gordon, Cape Wind president.

Completion of the federal permitting process for Cape Wind is expected soon. The project is waiting for the issuance of a record of decision by Department of the Interior (DOI). The DOI's Minerals Management Service issued a favorable final environmental impact statement in January.
