ROCKPORT - Rockport High School may soon have a wind tower in its backyard. The Department of Public Works and the School Committee approved an area near the school's softball field as an appropriate site to install a 164-ft wind data collection tower to see if a wind turbine will generate enough energy for adequate use.
This comes nearly one year after a committee was formed to research the possibilities for a wind tower in Rockport. School Committee members Carl Engel and Debra Bloomingdale said the proposed tower on school ground would be a "wonderful idea," not only because of the initiative to bring renewable energy sources to town, but also for the educational possibilities the tower could produce for the children at the schools.
Rockport's Wind Technology Committee is in the second of multiple phases in the goal of creating a wind turbine for town uses with the help of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative.
