The Department of Defense (DOD) recently released its report, titled "Wind Turbine Analysis for Cape Cod Air Force Station Early Warning Radar and Beale Air Force Base Upgraded Early Warning Radar," regarding the proposed Cape Wind offshore wind farm.

According to Mark Rodgers, Cape Wind's communications director, the report reveals that the proposed location of Cape Wind is outside of the wind turbine offset zone that is proposed for the U.S. Air Force PAVE PAWS radar systems. The DOD's report reached the same determination as the U.S. Air Force's analysis, which states that Cape Wind will not negatively affect the system, Rodgers adds.
