The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in 2013 changed wind turbine setbacks to 2000 feet in May of Read More2013. Nils Bolgen program manager for the Mass CEC admitted the mistakes of placing wind turbines "Ad Hoc" in 2010 in Fairhaven & Falmouth Wind Turbine Setbacks 2000 + Feet Nils Bolgen the program director and facilitator of Falmouth Wind 1 & 2 from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has changed the setbacks of the commercial wind turbines to 2000 feet in May of 2013. Based of the catastrophic health and finance issues in Falmouth the setbacks may be increased even more during 2014. Here is the May 2013 Quote increasing the Massachusetts setbacks to commercial megawatt turbines like that of Falmouth http://www.southcoasttoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130526/NEWS/305260341 "Nills Bolgen, who works with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, said his organization has become "more conservative" in requiring project proposals seeking funding to provide more detailed data if they are close to residential areas." "In 2005, when the Center began requiring applicants to provide acoustical data, Bolgen said it was done on an "ad hoc" basis." "Now, all turbine proposals within 2,000 feet of residences must provide that data."

Massachusetts "green" energy movement & chaos in Massachusetts MassachusettsRead MoreSenate President Therese Murray in the past publicly announced her opposition to the Wind Energy Siting Reform Act (WESRA). Senate President Therese Murray, a Plymouth Democrat, had hoped the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection agency’s noise report would have brought Falmouth residents relief. She is aware that the turbines have divided the Falmouth community. Therese Murray has yet to comment on the new 2014 Investigation by the Department of Public Utilities on its own Motion into Best Practices for the Siting of Land-Based Wind Energy Facilities. In the past she has favored local control over land based wind turbines rather than state siting. Here is a short video of Senate Murray opposing state control of the placement of commercial wind turbines http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwCT1DXIeVw&list=PLTSPYOc0fPfub49RIjgxjJNaIwzmM3wL8&index=3 Massachusetts Senate President Therese Murray has announced she will not seek re-election in the Senate Chamber.

The Plymouth Select Board has failed to do "Due Diligence " What about potential lawsuits Read Moreover these wind turbines and the three hundred homes ? Every wind turbine that went up since 2010 has a group of sick residents and another attorney. These turbines are a nightmare and people can't sleep ! What happens to the partner towns that sign on ? Do they get sued too ? Buyer Beware - Just sayin ... http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/2014/02/23/selectmen-seek-information-turbine-plan/Tj7DwTAiOPU2dmDI6tNu5J/story.html

Thanks for the support. Hateful opinions should be saved for people in their living room withRead Morelike values. Happiness can not be obtained with thoughts going so deep in the black. And their negativism affects the happiness of all who come across it. It's as simple as that. What is life without happiness. It all starts in your head.
