Cape Wind Associates of Boston, has proposed building the country's first offshore wind farm in Nantucket Sound. The 130 wind turbines would be placed in a 24-square-mile area on Horseshoe Shoal, and some of the 417-foot tall turbines would be visible from Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and various points along the Cape's south coast from Mashpee to Dennis.
