Offshore Wind Farms Considered for Rhode Island

Narragansett, Rhode Island [Associated Press] Gov. Don Carcieri’s administration this week unveiled a report calling it feasible to build wind farms off the coast of Rhode Island as part of a plan to get 15 percent of the state’s energy from wind in five years. Wind is plentiful in pockets along Narragansett Bay, and wind farms could supply much-needed energy to the Ocean State. But in a region where other wind projects have met with opposition, and in a state that prizes its shoreline, there’s a lingering question over whether residents will support such a project.
