New wind turbines will power R.I. waste-water plant

Providence is getting three new wind turbines that will be used to power a city waste-water plant. US Senator Jack Reed is expected to be on hand Monday morning to celebrate the completion of the turbine project at the Field’s Point Waste-water Treatment Facility near the city’s waterfront. The Narragansett Bay Commission built the turbines at a cost of $14 million using federal clean water funds. Reed’s office said he plans to speak at the event and discuss how clean energy sources can help protect Narragansett Bay from environmental pollution.
