A surprise announcement is being made by Rhode Island regarding a new offshore wind farm.  Deepwater Wind, which was one of the three hopefuls competing for a renewable energy contract with Massachusetts, didn't get that bid on Wednesday but got a consolation prize of sorts: a 400-megawatt project commissioned by the Ocean State in the same general area of federally leased ocean space.  The new farm will be ten times the size of the Block Island wind farm, which Rhode Island-based Deepwater manages.  The next step will be to enter negotiations with National Grid, which will submit a proposed contract to the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission for review.
