FAA rejects proposed wind turbine at Portsmouth High School  

The federal government has rejected a proposal to install a wind turbine at a high school in Portsmouth.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the 213-foot-tall wind turbine proposed for Portsmouth High School would be too high. The FAA says the plan needs to be modified. The agency had earlier rejected a proposed turbine at Portsmouth Middle School.

The turbine is intended to cut the costs of energy use in schools and curb reliance on fossil fuels. Voters last fall approved a $3 million bond to build a wind turbine at either the middle school or high school.

Portsmouth Town Administrator Robert Driscoll says he doesn’t know why the FAA opposes the plan, but says he doesn’t believe the problem will be insurmountable.
