Providence, R.I. – The Federal Aviation Administration says the town of Jamestown has a few options if it still wants to put up a wind turbine.
The FAA has sent Jamestown officials a notice that the wind turbine proposed for Taylor Point is too tall and would interfere with air traffic at Quonset Point.
The proposed turbine would stand 450-feet, but the FAA says it would not obstruct air traffic at about half that height. It says Jamestown could lower the height and re-apply for approval or move the wind turbine to another location.
Jamestown residents will vote in November whether the town should spend up to $6.5 million to build the turbine.
