Falmouth town voters need the facts about the operation and maintenance of these turbines. They were sold to last twenty years and are failing at around three to five years.
The Town of Falmouth is ignoring one of largest issues you can face gearbox assembly failure.
A gearbox can weigh in excess of 50 tons.
A utility-scale turbine like Falmouth Wind 1 gearbox replacement and crane can cost upwards of $1.5 million..
Where are the projected operation and maintenance costs of operating the Falmouth Wind 1 commercial wind turbine.
