PORTSMOUTH WIND TURBINE LARGEST IN RHODE ISLAND STILL BROKEN FOUR YEARS LATER
Commercial megawatt wind turbine noise causes clear and significant damage to peoples sleep and mental health. There are peer-reviewed scientific studies world wide. Massachusetts has had hundreds of noise complaints from the Falmouth wind turbines. After the Falmouth installation turbines were installed in Fairhaven, Kingston and Scituate thousands of complaints have been reported.
Those concerned residents/abutters near wind turbines are facing real health problems.
The cities,towns and private companies that purchased these turbines in the past three years now face a growing population of residential abutters with health problems. But thats not all.
This year should prove to be really interesting on the operation and maintenance of the megawatt turbines.The wind turbines were sold to last twenty to thirty years. The owners of these turbines are quickley finding out the turbines only last three to five years.
The negative facts about wind energy show a dirty little secret about gearbox failures. Commercial wind turbines in Portsmouth (Rhode Island), Princeton (Massachusetts) and Otis AFB (Cape Cod) all have catastrophic gearbox failures. All the turbines are three years old.
Keep your eye on the ball! In the past three years the state, cities, towns and wind turbine companies have stalled health studies as much as they can. The complaints grow by the hour. They continue to stall.
The catastrophic gearbox failures will quickly bring public attention to the economics of the turbines. What if the Town of Falmouth had to tell the Town Meeting Members they need one million to repair a three-year-old wind turbine?
