Fourteen years ago, Jim Gordon and his company Energy Management Inc. applied to build the nation’s first offshore wind project. They called it Cape Wind. Today, there are still no turbines in the water. In fact, the project is struggling to stay above water. The two utility companies that agreed to buy the power it would produce backed out of that agreement after they say Cape Wind missed a key deadline in their contract. Activists recently rallied on Boston Common in an effort to get those utilities to renew the contracts. Jake Lucas reports.
