Due to the high tourism rates and historical value of Newport, any changes to the dynamic of the city involve the interests of numerous parties. The Historical Society of Newport and year-long occupants have expressed concerns of the impact of tourism with the presence of offshore wind turbines off the Newport coast. Our research addresses these concerns by analyzing case studies and research based on other offshore wind farms subsequent tourism impacts. We expect offshore wind farm development to cause little negative impact on tourism and to potentially encourage tourism to Newport.
