MrSteve007: Betep: Overpriced electricity.Dumb idea.Never mind those pesky facts that wind power is one of the cheapest forms of electricity available./although I will agree that the cost of offshore wind in the USA is currently unproven.

Betep: Never mind the pesky fact Cape Wind power is going to cost 15% more than anything on the market, it will increase in price 1.5% every year for the first 20 years of operation, power companies are forced to buy electricity from them, anything "marine" or "Nantucket Sound" is going to cost big bucks, and no one wants to invest in it.
StopLurkListen: Betep: Overpriced electricity.Dumb idea.Costs of electricity by source, according to the DOE:Coal: $100.1/mwhWind: $86.6/mwh
