Duxbury Project Meets Strong Opposition
It isn’t only Shelburne and Falmouth and Fairhaven and Lenox where turbine proposals are meeting stiff opposition. The Boston Globe’s Christine Legere highlighted the speed of town residents in getting organized (“Duxbury Neighbors Organize Quickly” 11/20/11). The town of Duxbury’s municipal turbine plan would place almost 900 people within a 1.24 mile radius of the single turbine currently under discussion. With a marginal wind “resource” and potential impacts on residents, recreation areas and wildlife, it is no wonder residents are concerned.
