Wind study gets funding  

SCITUATE – The town has received a $65,000 grant to study whether wind energy can power its wastewater treatment plant.

The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative grant comes after more good news for wind-power advocates: 12 months worth of anemometer readings at the plant show that there is enough wind to make it a suitable site for a turbine.

Selectman Paul Reidy estimated that the town could save thousands of dollars by using wind power. The treatment plant used $146,000 worth of electricity last year.

A draft of the feasibility study is expected to be ready by September. Officials are considering a public meeting at that point to discuss the town’s options.
