In Rhode Island the final stage of construction is set to begin on the nation’s first offshore wind farm. The Block Island Wind Farm includes five turbines that will supply energy to the island and to mainland Rhode Island.

Meanwhile, the company, Deepwater Wind, is looking to build another – much larger – offshore wind farm nearby that would supply energy to Long Island.
