ACTION: Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), request for written scoping comments and invitation for participation by cooperating agencies. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The MMS has received a request from Cape Wind Associates, LLC (CWA) for a lease, easement or right-of-way to construct and operate a wind park located in Federal waters 4.7 miles offshore Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The purpose of this project is to provide a utility-scale wind energy facility providing power to the New England power grid. By this document, the MMS announces: (1) Its intention to prepare an EIS; (2) commencement of a 45-day written scoping period under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA); and (3) invitation for participation by interested cooperating agencies.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Rodney E. Cluck, Project Coordinator, at (703) 787–1087 in MMS’s Headquarters office regarding questions on the NOI. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION 1. Background In November 2001, CWA filed a permit application with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), New England District, under section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, in anticipation of constructing a wind park located on Horseshoe Shoal in Nantucket Sound, Massachusetts. The proposed wind park would consist of 130 offshore wind turbine generators arranged to maximize the park’s maximum potential electric output of approximately 454 megawatts. The wind-generated electricity from each of the turbines would be transmitted via a 33 kilovolt submarine transmission cable system to a centrally located electric service platform. This platform would transform and transmit electric power to the Cape Cod mainland (12+ miles) via two 115 kilovolt lines, where it would ultimately connect with the existing power grid. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was enacted on August 8, 2005, giving the Department of the Interior authority for issuing leases, easements, or rights-ofway for alternative energy projects on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Since its establishment in 1982, the DOI’s Minerals Management Service (MMS) has been responsible for management of oil, natural gas, and other mineral resource activities on offshore Federal lands. With the new authority in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the MMS will now also manage the alternative energy-related uses on Federal OCS lands, act as a lead agency for coordinating the permitting process with other Federal agencies, and monitor and regulate those facilities used for alternative energy production and energy support services. As such, the MMS must comply with NEPA when considering the CWA application. In addition to the MMS’ analysis under NEPA, the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) will apply to the project’s upland and submarine cable system components in Nantucket Sound out to the 3-mile State/Federal boundary. In order to address all the environmental analyses in the most efficient manner, the State E:\FR\FM\30MYN1.SGM 30MYN1
