Group against wind farm raises $10 million

UPI News Service, 04/01/2006 

Many U.S. environmental groups raise funds $10 at a time going door to door, but a group fighting a wind farm has raised $10 million via "big donors."

The Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound -- a group that is fighting the installation of 130 wind turbines in the waters off Cape Cod -- has raised the funds from many Cape Cod residents, The Boston Globe reported Saturday.

Yachting enthusiast William I. Koch donated $500,000 and former Reebok chief Paul Fireman kicked in $250,000. Michael Egan, whose father founded EMC Corp., gave $150,000, the Globe said.

The funds will help pay for a Washington lobbying firm, as well as lawyers and consultants, to fight environmentalists who say the wind farm will provide clean power. Other environmentalists and Cape Cod homeowners say they do not want the view spoiled or fishing grounds hurt.
