In this edition, Frank discusses a dispute between Portsmouth residents and the Navy over Navy plans to build a solar farm that’s expected to come close to a residential area that overlooks Narragansett Bay. Solar Breakers, a subsidiary of BQ Energy, LLC, has signed a 37-year lease with the Navy to build the 75-acre solar farm on what has been described as unused land. The planned relocation of a fence has raised concerns among residents of its impact on both quality of life and property values.

State Sen. Jim Seveney of Portsmouth and Ralph Sotak, a neighborhood advocate join Frank Prosnitz for this discussion on The Open Forum on AM 1540 WADK Newport.
