Gov. Don Carcieri will offer industry leaders an update Thursday on his plans to build a massive wind farm off Rhode Island's coast capable of providing 15 percent of the state's electricity needs. The Republican governor is scheduled to address a two-day workshop held in Boston next week by the American Wind Energy Association, a national trade group of wind developers, suppliers, researchers and others.
