Air Force wants 400' turbine on Cape Cod

The Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence wants to build a 400-foot wind turbine in the southwestern corner of the Massachusetts Military Reservation on the Upper Cape.

The AFCEE announced today that a public comment period will be open from March 19 to April 17. A public presentation of the plan will be held April 11 at 6 p.m. at the Bourne Best Western, 100 Trowbridge St. That location’s not far from two of the area’s existing turbines, one at Massachusetts Maritime Academy and the other at Upper Cape Regional Technical High School.

The MMR Wind Turbine Project Environmental Assessment document can be viewed at www.mmr.org under “Public Comment Periods” and at libraries in Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee and Sandwich. Comments should be mailed to:
