How in the world did the Town of Falmouth buy two turbines in 2009 valued at 5.2 million each through the MTC ? The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative bought these two turbines in 2004 and kept them in a warehouse at $3300.00 per month until the politically embarrassing turbines were sold to Falmouth through some Beacon Hill backdoor deal with our federal funds in 2009.

How did stimulus funds get used for two turbines that were so old they had NO warranty left on them ? These turbines were sold like a used car !

The federal prosecuters need to probe this whole deal !
