Happy belated birthday!

The Portsmouth, RI Town Wind Turbine is now in year two of operation.

While the fate of the Deepwater Wind projects are still being considered, let us not forget the Portsmouth Town Wind Turbine, which recently passed its first anniversary of operation.  In one year, the turbine, a 1.5MW AAER produced model, gave the town 3,626 mWh of power, equivalent to about 75% of the town’s electrical load.  It exceeded predicted production and revenue goals, and as such is an example of how wind power is right at home in the Ocean State. I play tennis at Portsmouth High School, right at the base of the 336 ft turbine, and hope to see more of these majestic turbines on the horizon soon.
