U.S. Navy proposing wind turbines at R.I. base

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.
