Updated: Cape Wind Project Approved

The Boston Globe's Green Blog is reporting that Interior Sec. Salazar has approved the Cape Wind Project:
In a groundbreaking decision that some say will usher in a new era of clean energy, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar approved the nation's first offshore wind farm today off Cape Cod, a person briefed on the decision said this morning.

Salazar is expected to announced his decision at noon at a joint State House news conference with Governor Deval Patrick after nine years of controversy over the proposal.

Several other sources with knowledge of the wind farm project said they expected Salazar to announce approval of the project. The governor is to be briefed by the secretary at 11:30 a.m., a source said.
Update:  The NY Times reports on Sec. Salazar's press conference here and CNN also has a report up on the historic Cape Wind approval.
