The U.S. Navy is proposing installing wind turbines at the Naval Station Newport in Rhode Island, according to the Providence Journal.
The project would provide 9 MW of power capacity, although the number of turbines needed would depend on the capacity of the individual turbines.
The project would be the largest onshore wind-power installation in Rhode Island and produce around a quarter of the electricity needed for the station. The project could reduce the station’s energy costs by as much as $3 million a year, according to the Journal.
