A wind farm is proposed for our back yard approximately 3/4 of a mile west of our back door. We already have an existing farm here in Searsburg, two miles south of our property, I can hear those machines. The noise emitting from machines due west of us would be unbearable. We have 5 abutting landowners who are very concerned, angry and scared of losing our peaceful environment.
A prehearing conference is scheduled for March 2 before the Public Service Board. A deadline for motions to intervene will be set at this hearing. Our town selectmen have endorsed this project without including the residents in this small town in the decision. I have knocked on doors and found an overwhelming opposition to this project.
