Wind 1 Going out of business
No published decision today, but Sean Driscoll reports in the Cape Cod Times that the “Falmouth turbine permit (is) headed for denial.”
The majority of board members found fault with the application on more than one front, including the zoning requirement that the turbine known as Wind 1 will not have “adverse effects” on either the neighborhood or the town. Throughout the permit hearing, which stretched over a half dozen meetings and several months, neighbors of the turbine presented evidence on multiple fronts, including personal testimony, in an attempt to show the negative effects of the turbine.
While Wind 1 has not been operating since September 2015, the final decision will assure that it does not start up again.
