Wind turbine could power MMR cleanup|

OTIS AIR BASE - Air Force officials want to build a 660-kilowatt wind turbine on the Massachusetts Military Reservation that could power the base's busy groundwater cleanup facilities.
The site for the proposed turbine, on the base boundary about a half-mile from Route 28 in Cataumet, is an ideal location because it is a windy area and the treatment plants use a lot of electricity, said officials from the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence Installation Restoration Program.
Air Force officials estimate the turbine could reduce the program's electric bill by about $170,000 a year.
