Why Block Island

Good Jobs

Employing 200 workers during project construction, and dozens more in long-term maintenance and operations. Major construction activities in Rhode Island ports – turbine assembly, foundation fabrication and more – building workforce skills for our larger projects. Independant ananlysts predict the project will generate over $100 million in economic activity in Rhode Island.

Clean Energy

Connecting Block Island to the mainland grid for the first time via the Block Island Transmission System – reliable, renewable energy that will reduce island electric rates by an estimated 40 percent and diversify Rhode Island’s power supply.

Healthy Communities

No longer will this beautiful island community have to rely on diesel energy. The Block Island Wind Farm will reduce harmful emissions and provide clean energy for one of America’s Last Great Places.
