More on Rhode Island wind project

An interview with the Commissioner of Rhode Island Energy Resources about the RIWINDS project conducted by US Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy office.

Interestingly, his analysis that it would take 5-7 years to develop any of the sites proposed in the study, which is what I guessed in my earlier post.

The image is from page 65 of the study and shows the proposed regions with best wind characteristics.
