Mass. Town May Be First to Tear Down Turbines
The town’s two turbines have been controversial since the first one was installed in 2010.
Some neighbors have persistently complained about the noise from the turbines and also attribute a range of ailments to them, from dizziness, to headaches to memory loss. But other residents have reported no problems.
Some in town say it’s far too soon to tear down a critical renewable energy project they estimate could produce $450,000 in revenues for the town annually.
The town would have to borrow $14 million to tear the turbines down. On Tuesday, Falmouth’s Town Meeting assembly will decide whether to put the question about borrowing the money to voters in May.
