Cape Wind will help relieve stress on natural gas supplies reaching New England

As reported in Commonwealth Magazine, the Cape Cod Times, and Cape Cod Today, National Grid is having to double electricity generation prices for Massachusetts customers and a big increase is in store for NSTAR customers too.  The reason is the stress placed on fixed natural gas pipeline capacity coming into New England, which has to import its fossil fuels.  Natural gas demand in winter has grown much more quickly than supply.  Tapping more local, clean, and inexhaustable energy sources, like Cape Wind, will help reduce the stress on this system, thereby reducing prices and increasing electric reliability.
