Developers of a planned off-shore wind farm on Nantucket Sound have begun accepting public comments on the project. Cape Wind would be the first of its kind in the U.S. and could provide enough non-polluting electricity to power three quarters of Cape Cod customers.

Proposed in 2001, Cape Wind has generated public and political opposition from those voicing concern over possible impacts on wildlife, boating navigation and the seascape.

But, Mark Rogers, with Cape Wind, says the benefits of cleaner and cheaper energy should make the decision a breeze.

"I think at the end of the day, what these regulators are going to find, is that there's a very strong net public benefit in going forward with a project like Cape Wind."

Rogers adds the price of electricity generated with wind energy is more stable than electricity generated with fossil fuels.

"The price of wind power is more certain and predictable over time, while the cost of fossil fuels is very volatile."

Cape Wind filed the Final Environmental Impact Report last week. If approved, construction could begin in 2010. Public comment on the project will be accepted through March 22.
