Navy proposes wind power at Naval Station Newport

NEWPORT, R.I.  – The U.S. Navy is proposing to install nine megawatts of wind power at the Naval Station Newport.

The Providence Journal reports that the plan would put up several large wind turbines, though the number will depend on the size of the turbines, which has yet to be determined. It’s also not known where the turbines would go.

The turbines would make up the largest onshore wind-power installation in Rhode Island. They would provide a quarter of the station’s electricity and could reduce its energy bill by as much as $3 million a year.

The Navy is looking at ways to reduce its fossil fuel use and increase renewable energy. A 2005 federal law directs federal agencies to increase renewable energy use and cut energy use by 3 percent annually.
