Mr Seveney~ What is your position on the predicament that Portsmouth finds itself in with regards to the Wind Turbine Generator? I believe you were in favor of the project from the start, correct? (Please tell me if I'm incorrect as I cannot recall.) Now that the WTG is in need of a major and costly repair I would like to know your opinion as to what the best option is going forward is. It seems to me that the possible options are to repair the wind turbine no matter what it costs. Scrap the project altogether because the repair costs are too high and it will likely just break down gain down the road. Or some other option in the middle (lease the operation out to a 3rd party for example). Please be specific in your reply. Were you a proponent from the start? And how are we to move forward from here. Thanks
