Seminar on industrial sized wind turbines – the Falmouth experience

What: Seminar on industrial sized wind turbines
When: Friday, April 12 from 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Where: Cross Mills Public Library
Speaker: Neil Andersen

Neil Andersen has lived in Falmouth Massachusetts for twenty two years and has lived with industrial sized wind turbines in his town for the past several years. Mr. Andersen has spoken in over twelve Massachusetts communities about the direct impact of industrial sized wind turbines in residential areas. He will share his first hand experiences with Charlestown residents followed by a Question and Answer session.

The Falmouth Board of Selectmen and the Falmouth Finance Committee held a joint April 4, 2013 meeting and unanimously voted to remove the town’s wind turbines. Charlestown has not yet erected any large scale turbines. Before we do, it seems prudent to examine the Falmouth experience.
