We need to ask why they are bypassing New Bedord ,Massachusetts as a wind turbine construction site for the Cape Wind project and giving all the jobs to Rhode Island !

Here is some news :

August 12, 2010 Rhode Island PUC

Quonset Point, RI A Rhode Island official said Wednesday the project's developers are in ongoing discussions with Massachusetts officials about using Quonset Point as a staging port for both ocean wind projects and hope to make a formal announcement soon.

Gov. Donald L.Carcieri had announced in the past that the Quonset Development Corporation (QDC), a subsidiary of the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (EDC) was awarded a $22.3 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant from the US Department of Transportation. The grant will support wind energy manufacturing and logistical operations and improve marine highway infrastructure at the Quonset Business Park.

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley has pushed the Nantucket Sound project into lowering the proposed rates for its controversial offshore wind turbines forcing it to move its headquarters out of state. Massachusetts unions had counted on the work.
