Falmouth selectmen support tearing down turbines

FALMOUTH — "Standing in the shadow of Falmouth's two town-owned wind turbines on Wednesday, Brent Putnam said he felt a squeeze in the air pressure and heard the loud mechanical noise akin to a jet engine.
"You can feel it," said Putnam, vice chairman of the board of selectmen.
That sealed his decision about Falmouth's two 1.65-megawatt turbines at the town's wastewater treatment facility.
He then drove about five miles to a special selectmen's meeting where, for the first time, he and all four other selectmen voted in support of removing the town-owned Wind 1 and Wind 2 turbines, the cause of a bitter three-year controversy in Falmouth that began when neighbors complained of adverse health effects they say were from the turbines.
Senate President Therese Murray, D-Plymouth, praised the idea of removing the turbines. Murray, whom selectmen named as a legislator they would likely approach seeking financial assistance, said in a statement she looks forward to hearing more about Falmouth's decommissioning plans."
