and the windmills are wayyyy off the coast near the lighthouse. They are not block anyone's view of anything. Gorgeous looking structures. Massive things. they will certainly save Block Island a metric fuckton of money on power as BI is the most expensive power consumer in the US. The damn island imports mountains of diesel fuel to power generators FFS. That style went out in the 60s.
Now if the cranky bastards who mandate that every house looks like Amnity out of Jaws and would let people put Solar Panels up on their houses this wouldn't be so bad, but the fuckers who say "OH THIS MUST BE HISTORIC LOOKING!" refuse to let any innovation come to the island. People can't have Sat dishes on their roof, has to be on the side of the house buried. Want internet? EL OH EL DSL 5/1 at a staggering amount of cash.
Block Island is pretty but it's technologically backwards. If only they'd have more cell towers as Cell phone service is GREAT and you can get 4G/LTE everywhere, now let me use 4G/LTE as full blown internet there phone carriers. It's make the curmudgeon town council happy that no more wires would have to be run to their drab and dull looking houses. /would buy a house there //rent it for the summer ///live in the winter ////Blue Pottery Coffee cups are the bomb.
