1. Cape Wind approved
After a long battle between the green enegry camp and those who sought to preserve Cape Cod's natural beauty, the state gave final approval to building a controversial wind farm in Nantucket Sound. Construction is set to begin next year.
The project was helped by a commitment by National Grid to buy power from the wind farm. However, a Massachusetts business group is alleging that deal was "arbitrary, capricious" and is asking the state's highest court to set aside the agreement.
