This rating was published 05/01/2018 and includes data from FY2016, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound is dedicated to the long-term preservation of Nantucket Sound, the historic body of water that lies between Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. The Alliance was formed in 2002 in response to Cape Wind's proposal to build a 25-square-mile wind energy project in the Sound. We support responsibly sited renewable energy development and the use of coastal marine planning to identify appropriate sites for development. The Alliance and its 20,000+ supporters oppose Cape Wind due to the conflicts inherent in a project whose site selection has entirely ignored the public interest and the public process. Our supporters include environmentalists, chambers of commerce, fishermen, Native American tribes, ferry operators, airport commissions, business trade groups, municipalities, homeowners, and others.
