I applaud Deepwater Wind for undertaking an ambitious wind farm project that will bring renewable, pollution-free power to southern New England.

People talk about the high cost of wind power but ignore the fact that most of those costs are upfront. Unlike coal, the fuel for wind power is free. In the long run, wind power pays for itself: The Department of Energy estimates that power from wind will cost only 7-to-9 cents per kilowatt/hour in 2030. This is cheaper than the current New England average from dirty energy sources, a price that will only go up with the price of coal. And these numbers do not take into account the jobs created by wind farms, nor the money saved on healthcare from decreased air pollution.

The real bottom line is that every watt produced by a renewable source like wind or solar power is a watt produced without polluting the air we breathe and water we drink.
