Turbine tracking 

The state wants to know how lobsters, fish, bats, and birds would be affected if Hull builds four wind turbines off Nantasket Beach.

Ian Bowles, secretary of the state Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, said the town also must look at the effect on commercial and recreational fishing, compare the plan to alternatives based on land, and examine the noise that would be generated by the turbines.

“We have a laundry list of additional items we need to look at to get final approval,” said Town Manager Philip Lemnios.

If approved, the 476-foot-tall turbines would generate about 15 megawatts of electricity, enough to meet all the electrical demands of the town, which already operates two land-based wind turbines.

“I commend [Hull] for its commitment to renewable energy development,” Bowles wrote last week in his certificate authorizing the environmental review.

“Clearly the intent of this project is consistent with state energy policy; however, renewable technologies are not without environmental impacts.”
