In the Saturday, May 3 edition of The Block Island Times, we published a special section called "A Brief History of Wind Power on Block Island." The stories provide a glimpse of the beginnings of wind power on the island, through an experimental phase in the 1970s, and up to the proposed five-turbine wind farm off our shores, now called Deepwater ONE. It also includes a timeline of how wind power was used dating back to ancient Greece.

A pdf of the entire four-page section is available by clicking on the link below.
