The Board of Health will hold an April 1 public hearing on the issue of shadow flicker from the town’s wind turbines. The board discussed the issue last week and heard statements from residents who live near the turbines and said they have recorded 30- to 40-minute sessions of flicker from a turbine. The town had expected shadow flicker to occur only rarely and for a few minutes at a time.“Flicker has really become a more significant concern than anyone in the beginning thought,” board chairman Joe Casna said. The board also agreed to approach selectmen to consider the town’s options in addressing residents’ concerns over health effects from the turbines.

LELAND ROAD- Middle-school student Brian Reilly says he can’t play basketball on Leland Road when the strobing effect from the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine’s shadow flicker is at full throttle.“I get a wicked bad headache so I have to go inside,” Brian told the Journal as he stood on the front steps of his neighbors house.

Dan Alves, also a resident of Leland Road, refuses to allow his epileptic son to stay in his bedroom when the KWI Turbine’s shadow flicker penetrates into his house.“That’s pretty much the rule,” Alves told the Journal on Friday afternoon.“We don’t want him in his room but we’re not always home so we can’t control it.”
