Cape Wind to Enter Rhode Island?

Cape Wind may lease space in Rhode Island to build the gigantic windmill turbines for its proposed Cape Wind Project as reported in Cape Wind considering locating at Quonset park , Megan Matteucci, Providence Journal, 1/5/04 (free regis. req'd). According to the article, the proposal would likely involve leasing space at Pier 2 and another 30 acres for assembly and staging, starting in the summer of 2005. Cape Wind has also expressed interest in using Quonset's rail lines and airport, in addition to the port. Geoffrey Grout, economic manager for Quonset Park was quoted as saying "It's a sensible and profitable proposal," Grout said. "And it [would mean] a couple of million dollars in rental space and about 500 jobs."
