Judge Nixes East Bay Solar Farm Plan

(Portsmouth, RI)  --  A Rhode Island judge is striking down local approval of a solar farm in Portsmouth.  The Providence Journal reports Superior Court Judge Brian Van Couyghen has reversed the town's zoning board of review's approval of a permit for a two-point-nine-megawatt farm, saying it represented an improper manufacturing use in a residential area.  The town's solicitor says the ruling is being reviewed, while an attorney for Portsmouth Solar, the company that was planning to operate the farm, says it disagrees with the findings.
