4-28 With Invenergy being committed to renewable power production, would Invenergy be willing to repair existing dams and construct a mini power producing facility utilizing a water wheel versus a water turbine so as to maintain the cultural heritage of the town? (Burrillville is an old mill town and water wheel power was the mainstay of its founding.)
4-29 Both solar and wind power production are variable or of limited production use. However, the streams flow 24 hours per day and only slow down during the dry season. The old water wheel system was strong enough to power a full size textile mill. A water wheel should be able to turn a 15 to 20 Kw generator. Do you agree?
