CT, RI wind farm gets federal decision on environmental plan

One of Connecticut’s first two wind farms reached a major milestone on Tuesday, with the Bureau of Ocean Energy issuing a “record of decision” in the environmental review process for Revolution Wind, a prerequisite clearing the way for construction in the coming weeks. Revolution Wind will be located 15 miles off Point Judith, R.I., with partners Orsted and Eversource planning to sell the electricity generated by wind turbines to Connecticut and Rhode Island. That construction activity includes crews conducting multiple test pits near along the Quonset Business Park in North Kingstown, R.I., and at the substation where power from the wind farm will be brought ashore, and then converted for use on the regional electric grid. >click to read< 16:06

    We are losing to inept politicians like Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont who’s ignorance mirrors NJ Gov. Phil Murphy’s! I suspect he will have no concerns for the whale deaths he will now be responsible for with the industrialization of our oceans.
