They would never ask this question about wind turbine torture !

Massachusetts several years ago unleashed the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative to advance commercial wind turbines in Massachusetts. Today the semi quasi state agency is known as the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

The Mass CEC has fostered the rapid expansion of commercial wind turbine systems. These locations next to residential homes have created zones of conflict between town officials and residents who describe the wind turbine noise and shadow flicker as a type of torture.

The commercial wind turbines in many cases are permitted by the state of Massachusetts.In many communities residents are viewed as political enemies when they complain about their failing health. The residents around commercial wind sites in several Massachusetts towns have been perceived as enemies of the state.

The Massachusetts state semi quasi state agency works with commercial wind turbine contractors on construction projects in the production of commercial wind for the good of the states renewable energy goal.

The commercial wind turbines have become a chronic problem. The projects continued to deliberately bring health issues to residential communities.

Solar energy is the wave of the future.

We built a passive solar home in Nashua NH We get half of our heat from the sun. We reduced our heating bill by half.

House is warmer at those times of year when you need just a little heat to take the chill off and cooler in summer when you need AC.

Lots of south facing glass and 14 skylights add the solar gain needed to keep the home warm.

Count Rumford style fireplace heats the home in the event of a power outage due to ice storm etc.

Utilities are brought in under ground which keeps the appearance of the house neat and wireless.

Recommend the design cause it works, today and as long as the house stands or the sun goes out.
