Block Island Times: Some supporters of the proposed Block Island Wind Farm are stepping up to have their opinions heard, and have established a grassroots group called “Friends of the B.I. Wind Farm,” with a goal of educating the community in a positive way.
Group organizer Gwyneth Wilson explains that the group began recently. Wilson moved to living full-time on the island starting in August. While there is email circulation of around 400 contacts, she said, a much smaller number gathers informally, mostly to share information with one another.
“As individuals, we speak up about our own opinions,” Wilson explained. “That’s why we’re a true grassroots organization.”
