And to make matters worse, youd have to pay the price taghundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. Your union urges you to VOTE NO!

Just a few years from now, Rhode Islands Block Island will be powered by an offshore wind farm 16 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. Getting to that point requires a multitude of professionals collaborating on who, what, when, where, why, and how to logically, efficiently, and most of all safely reach that goal.
The project at hand is the Block Island Wind Farm the first U.S. offshore wind farm in our nations history that is establishing its footprint 2.5 nautical miles southeast of Block Island.
The five-turbine, 30-megawatt project will feature General Electric Haliade 150 6-MW turbines that should be installed in late summer 2016 with commercial operations starting before the end of the year. The project is expected to produce more than 125,000-megawatt hours annually.
