Wind turbine tour to be held at N.E. Tech

The Rhode Island Renewable Energy Siting Partnership, a state effort being facilitated by the University of Rhode Island, will hold a wind turbine tour on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m. at the New England Institute of Technology turbine on 2500 Post Road, Warwick.

Participants will be able to see how a local wind turbine looks and operates, and also how it provides a source of renewable energy. The New England Tech wind turbine is 156 feet tall and the solar electric system size is 23,630 watts.

The tour is free and open to the public, but space is limited and RSVP is required. To RSVP, call Sue Kennedy at 874-6107 or email her at skennedy@crc.uri.edu.
