Carcieri to announce developer of wind farm


It's due to happen this afternoon at the Port of Davisville. 

From the gov's office:

The successful developer will be chosen to construct a wind energy project off the shores of Rhode Island that will provide 1.3 million megawatt hours per year of renewable energy - 15 percent of all electricity used in the state.                    

"This announcement marks a major step to bring wind power to Rhode Island and to reach our goal of at least 15 percent of all electricity in the state be renewable energy," said Governor Donald L. Carcieri.  "Of the many forms of renewable energy alternatives available, wind is the proven leader. Wind power is clean, green power that is not subject to variations and increases in fuel price. Rhode Island's is uniquely positioned to lead the nation with the development of this country's first off shore wind farm."
