DPU Hearings Offer Public Forum on Wind
While the DPU initiative is an obvious effort of the executive branch to by-pass the Massachusetts legislature on wind turbine siting, the five public hearings in January give everyone an opportunity to raise the issues. Read more about the siting categories.
Even if each person has only a brief opportunity to speak, there are plenty of things to say about the turbines–large and small–that are wreaking havoc on individuals and communities.
The hearings are scattered around the state, allowing most people a venue that is close to them:
