The city of Boston has announced that it is examining the feasibility of wind power in the Boston Harbor Islands. The first feasibility study will be conducted on Moon Island for three months. Massachusetts-based Second Wind Inc. is donating wind-assessment technology for the study.

At a press conference in front of the 100 kW wind turbine at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 103, Jim Hunt, chief of environmental and energy services for Boston, thanked Second Wind for donating the use of its Triton Sonic Wind Profiler to conduct wind studies at Moon Island, the first planned site.

"We're pleased to be benefiting from locally grown, leading-edge technology in our wind energy program," says Hunt. "Second Wind and other green tech firms are one of the Boston area's best resources for economic development and for a more sustainable future."

The city's wind feasibility study on Moon Island is funded by a $21,500 grant from the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative's Renewable Energy Trust.
