The school department of North Kingstown, R.I., has contracted with Applied Science Associates (ASA) to perform a study to advise on the technical and economic feasibility of constructing the town's first utility-sized wind turbine power generator.

ASA's wind energy expert and senior principal, Daniel Mendelsohn, will act as principal-in-charge and project manager on the project, and lead a team of five sub-contractors, including Loria Emerging Energy Consulting, GZA Geo-Environmental, Maguire Group, Sustainable Energy Advantage and Rich Gross Electrical. The team has worked together for the past four years and is actively involved in the development of wind projects in several New England states.

"What makes today's news most notable is the fact that this could be Rhode Island's third megawatt-scale turbine, and Rhode Island is poised to be at the leading edge of a municipal renewable energy revolution in the Northeast and in the United States," says Mendelsohn.

ASA's wind energy team was recently involved in a similar wind energy study for the new utility-scale, megawatt-sized wind turbine built for the Town of Portsmouth, R.I. A North Kingstown turbine could potentially provide over 3 million kWh hours of energy annually.
