Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound
The Alliance is a nonprofit environmental organization dedicated to the long-term preservation of Nantucket Sound. Our goal is to protect Nantucket Sound in perpetuity through conservation, environmental action, and opposition to inappropriate industrial or commercial development. The Alliance was formed in 2001 in response to Cape Wind's proposal to build a 25-square mile wind power development in the Sound. The Alliance supports wind power as an alternative energy source; however, we oppose the irresponsibly-sited Cape Wind project, which would negatively impact our local environment, economy, historic and Tribal interests, and public safety.
