Wind Turbine off the Coast of Cape Cod

Does anyone know more about this?

I just read on that Ken Salazar has just approved plans for an offshore wind farm off of Cape Cod. Apparently the plan includes the construction of 130 wind turbines. The company, Cape Wind (I'd link to the company's website but it seems to be down right now), says it can start power output by 2012 and the eventual goal is to power about 3/4ths of the homes on the Cape.

I think they'd be kind of fun to sail around. I could see how they might hinder helicopter rescue but how close could you get to them? I'm not really sure but this is definitely a win for renewable energy.
