The concept for the wind farm was hatched early last year during a leadership conference at Roger Williams University in which East Bay officials discussed ways they could collaborate to save taxpayer money. One idea presented at the event was to jointly explore green energy options.
It is exciting to read that The Renewable Energy Fund, which is managed by the state Economic Development Corporation, awarded another $335,000 grant last month that will pay for a meteorological tower to collect wind data and will also go toward more detailed studies of permitting issues, governing structures for the consortium and financing options, including the availability of state and federal funds.
