With respect to recent articles and commentaries regarding the Revolution Wind project off the Rhode Island coast, I have a few questions that seem pretty obvious — and yet are proving difficult to find the answers to.
What is the total project cost of the ~ 100 turbines Revolution wind is proposing off the RI coast?
What is the funding mechanism beyond pre-construction expenses?
Who are the bankers or financial advisors for the project?
Who are the lawyers representing Revolution Wind?
Will electricity ratepayers in Rhode Island pay a price if, for whatever reason, the Revolution Wind farm does not perform as billed; whether it be for operational or environmental reasons?
How have the 5 Block Island turbines performed relative to projections?
When comparing a field of 5 towers with a height of 589 feet each off of Block Island to a 100 Tower Field from Revolution Wind with a height of 875 feet each - are any of the metrics used to project expected future performance based on Block Island 5 even relevant?
Why won’t Ørsted (the developer) reveal how much money will be put in reserve for decommissioning?
As many have asked - why not walk before one runs? With maybe just 10 turbines as the walking part. Block Island five is the crawling part.
When will a scientific report regarding the cause of Whales beaching off the coasts of New Jersey/New York in unprecedented numbers be made available to the public?
If these questions are to be answered truthfully, is there an independent source?
