Wind Turbine & Bond -Voters own it!

    The Portsmouth High School wind turbine is a asset. There was one vote for buying the turbine and bonding the turbine. That vote was approved by the voters of Portsmouth. Any change or sale of the bonds and ownership of the turbine has to go back to the voting public.   The Town Manager or the Town Council can't just give town assets to private industry. This is not what the vote was for.

The Portsmouth Town Council has heard a number of possible outcomes for the town's wind turbine. The turbine has been broken since May of 2012.

Special legislation allowed one vote by the residents of Portsmouth. That legislation was for a 3 million dollar bond and a commercial wind turbine in one package . "One Package"
