Wind

The state of Massachusetts currently has about 20 MW of installed wind capacity (x turbines), but there are plans to ramp up the number of projects in coming years.

Although the cost of constructing wind projects can be high (residentially-sized turbines cost, on average, about $30,000; a larger 100-kW turbine can cost up to $350,000; and utility-scale wind farm turbines are even more expensive), they can be designed to be cost-effective.

The Wind Powering America web site has a good summary of wind activities in Massachusetts, as well as incentives, rebates and links to further resources for those interested and/or concerned about the issue.
