Turbine Roulette

January 13, 2019
ar-160309648Falmouth is facing a tough decision in its next roll in the wind turbine gamble–move, dismantle, or share. On Monday January 14, 2019, the Selectmen will hear that discussion at 7:45 PM:
Discussion and vote on moving, repurposing or dismantling wind turbines. Options to include:
  • a. Wind 2 to alternative Falmouth wastewater site or a site outside of Falmouth
  • b. Wind 1 to a site outside of Falmouth

As Mark Cool reports on his Firetower Wind blog, Falmouth Selectmen to Weigh Relocation Option,

The Falmouth Board of Selectmen intend discussing and voting to potentially relocate a major piece of municipal infrastructure, at an upfront cost to taxpayers of 3 million dollars, while an official zoning classification of the wind turbine structure goes without address or determination.

Read more on the 2018 timeline of dismantlement–or not.

    Sure hope this meeting is televised! And I hope Falmouth neighbors document the complaints from Scituate as evidence of harm up to 3,300’ (from a single 1.5 MW turbine)

    Anyone in Falmouth open to a suggestion for this to happen?!? Dave Dardi’s letters and or video at local meetings should be submitted in support of NO relocation
