Area residents are preparing to rally against Chelsea Energy LLC, an affiliate of Cape Wind, which has proposed the construction of a 250-megawatt diesel burning peak power plant along the Chelsea Creek, in the heart of a densely populated area adjacent to Chelsea's Burke Elementary School Complex. This prospect has united local reaidents, city council officials, and state representatives from area communities to fight the energy giant. The proposed construction of a power plant only hundreds of feet from an elementary school in Chelsea, Massachusetts, has outraged the entire region.
