North Kingstown Wind ProjectWe helped the client with issues regarding the construction and maintenance of this single 1.5MW wind turbine located at the principal’s residence, the utility’s implementation of net metering, cost of interconnection and property taxation.  Through administrative litigation we required the utility to true up its actual interconnection costs against the advance payment of estimated costs.  Our property tax case for this turbine went to the Rhode Island Supreme Court where we established that turbines are exempt manufacturing equipment, laying the groundwork for our negotiation of a consistent, foreseeable and fair local tax policy that the State subsequently adopted.
