Support ice rink wind turbine – MV Times Letter to Editor
To the Editor: We wholeheartedly support the application for a wind turbine at the Martha’s Vineyard Arena to serve their electrical load. Every possible metric shows that this project will be vital to promotion of the energy concepts of the Island Plan: It will demonstrate the practicality of local on-site generation of electricity using solar energy (via the wind). It will serve as a wonderful model for all of the youngsters at the ice rink, letting them see a viable solution to global warming in action, right at their skating rink. It will show that wind turbines can provide an important revenue stream to reduce exposure to fossil fuel price increases.
