Rhode Island Renewable Energy Siting Partnership Final Report: Volume 1, Summary Report

“The Renewable Energy Siting Partnership (RESP) is a state-wide renewable energy resource assessment and siting analysis in Rhode Island that blends a worldwide literature review, state-specific original research, and an extensive stakeholder engagement process to help Rhode Islanders evaluate and plan for renewable energy in their communities.”  One of the three categories of renewable energy the RESP examined was “onshore wind energy projects between 100 kW and 1.5 MW.”  The purpose of Chapter 1 of this document, which focuses on wind energy exclusively, “is to provide a summary of the best available science regarding wind resources in Rhode Island and to highlight relevant siting considerations that municipalities may wish to consider when reviewing or siting a wind energy project.” (authored by Gold, M. and McCann, J.)
