Bourne-Act Now or Lament Later

November 1, 2015

The Bourne Board of Health could take action to protect residents from wind turbine pollution in the neighboring town, Plymouth, if it heeded the evidence of other towns with turbine issues. These are laid out by Bourne resident Chris Kapsambelis in the message he sent this week to the BOH. 

The Future Generation Wind project will most likely produce widespread complaints, as did similar projects in Falmouth, Fairhaven, and Kingston. These complaints will compel authorities to investigate, and conduct studies that will find violations leading to orders for curtailment. Any curtailment of operations on these wind turbines will destroy the project profit margin.

He notes that distance from turbines is key to avoiding harm to neighboring residents, and the Future Generation Wind project in Plymouth is too close to some Bourne residents.
