The world's largest developer of offshore wind farms wants to come to Massachusetts. Denmark-based DONG Energy says it wants to build up to 100 wind turbines 15 miles south of Martha's Vineyard.

They're calling it Bay State Wind and, if constructed, it would be North America's largest offshore wind farm.
