On March 20, 2009, the Town of Portsmouth RI officially energized its utility scale wind turbine located at the Portsmouth High School. The wind turbine is the first erected in the US by manufacturer AAER headquartered in Quebec. It is a 1.5 MW turbine which rises to a height of 336 feet from the ground to the tip of blade.
