Turbine flicker, noise at center of Kingston debate
KINGSTON, Mass.( MyFoxBoston.com )– The debate about the noise and flicker caused by five wind turbines in Kingston continues.
"We can't live like this. We need help. This is torture. We are suffering," said Doreen Reilly, of Kingston.
Reilly has lived at her home on Leland Road for 20 years. In May of 2012 the 480 foot turbine was put up about 300 yards from her house.
"You can't read a book. You can't just sit and have a conversation," said Reilly. "The noise takes over your home. The flicker takes over your home."
Reilly said the blades of the turbine creates a strobe effect that makes her family sick and the sound it makes has caused sleeping problems.
"There are between 40 and 50 complaints on file in the office and we have forwarded all of those complaints to DEP," said Joe Casna, chair of the Kingston select board and board of health.
Kingston Wind Independence, the owner of one of the turbines, said it would evaluate the situation further after the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center conducts a study. Casna said the study has been delayed weeks while the scope of the evaluation and cost are drafted.
