Official: US to OK first offshore wind farm

A government official briefed on the decision confirms that the U.S. Interior Secretary has approved what would be the United States' first offshore wind farm, off Cape Cod in Massachusetts.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the person was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of the announcement scheduled for noon Wednesday.
Secretary Ken Salazar's announcement on the controversial Cape Wind project clears the way for a 130-turbine wind farm in Nantucket Sound.
