Navy Discards Turbine Plans

The U.S. Navy is dropping plans to build a wind power station at Naval Station Newport.  The Navy instead is conducting a study into the installation of solar panels on the base that could generate ten megawatts of electricity.  The panels would be placed on rooftops and brownfields around the station.  Neighbors and public officials had opposed the plan for several large wind turbines at the station because of the impact they would have on views.
