America's first offshore wind farm hires Cape firm to redo its web presence

A major local industry explained in a sparkling new website

The company's communications director, Mark Rodgers said the new site reflects the progression of Cape Wind which has moved well beyond the development and permitting phase and is now securing financing and preparing for construction.

Buying and hiring local

This company has consistently endeavored to buy local and hire local.

The new website even has a link on the top of the front page to tell readers how to apply for a job in the staging, assembly and ocean construction work associated with building this project or for one of the eventual positions on the maintenance and operations team.

The new website has all the latest bells and whistles, but as a reader, my favorite area was the homepage quiz.

  • Year the 1st offshore wind farm was built in Europe: 1991.

  • World’s largest offshore wind farm: The London Array.

A Cape Cod-based internet design and marketing company, eCape, designed the new website.

In a full disclosure, I once owned the local internet company which built the new website, but I had nothing to do with its selection to build the new site. Below is the new homepage.
