Falmouth Select Meeting Jan 23 2013 Wind Turbine
Posted in the Falmouth Forum
#1 Jan 22, 2013
The state spent $400,000.00 for 26 meetings over eight months for the poor siting of commercial wind turbines in Falmouth ,Massachusetts .
The former semi quasi state agency the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative was the state's economic development agency for renewable energy. This agency sold two Vestas V 82 commercial wind turbines in the Town of Falmouth area .The agency changed its name to the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center after the politically embarrassing mistakes. The turbines were kept in a warehouse in Texas for five years at $3500.00 a month.
We recommend that the Town of Falmouth Board of Selectmen, with assistance from a neutral facilitator, convene a Falmouth Wind Turbine Option Analysis Committee (the Committee), made up of themselves and representatives of those concerned about adverse affects on neighbors, supporters of Falmouth-based renewable energy, supporters and beneficiaries of fiscal impacts, and relevant town government departments, to meet as needed to clarify the range of potential long-term options, identify the questions for investigation, determine legitimate methods for answering those questions, jointly review the information, and re-evaluate the options given the new information
On January 23 , Wednesday the Select Board will take public input from the report :
