Those Cape Cod Canal turbines make the Boston media; Opponents try to compare it to the Falmouth situation

FOX-25 in Boston is covering the New Generation Wind proposal to build wind turbines west of the Cape Cod Canal Scenic Highway on the Bourne side of the canal.

The developer plans to sell the energy to the national grid when the project is approved by the Cape Cod Commission.

There were seven turbines planned, but the project has been scaled back by more than half to only three to accommodate the neighbors, says the project’s spokesman Greg O’Brien of Brewster.

They will face the two new turbines at the Mass. Military Reservation Pave Paws site on the Sandwich side of the canal.

O’Brien, who writes a blog on CapeCodTODAY, says, “The Falmouth situation is an anomaly. Yes, there is noise. It is an older turbine. Our turbine is far more up-to-date. There was really no permitting process for Falmouth.”

O’Brien continued, “Our permitting process is a very extensive process through the Cape Cod Commission, it goes to the Bourne planning board, board of health. The issues that are experienced in Falmouth will not be experienced in Bourne and we don’t feel it’s appropriate for those two projects to be compared.”

The project is opposed by Mark Cool among others who excoriates the Falmouth Enterprise editorial on his Facebook.
