Kingston Independence developer clarifies sound study

KINGSTON – The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center will both pay for and conduct a sound study of the Kingston wind turbine Independence, according to Kingston Wind Independence co-manager Kially Ruiz.

Ruiz said Kingston Wind Independence asked for MassCEC to voluntarily step in and conduct the sound assessment, and the quasi-public agency has agreed to do so.

A spokesman for the Department of Environmental Protection said last week that the Clean Energy Center was working with the developer to find the resources so that the developer could conduct the sound assessment.

“We have every reason to want an unbiased study,” Ruiz said. “First of all, we take our responsibility to comply with Massachusetts law very seriously. Second, we want to be good neighbors, so we would want to know if anything is wrong. We expect the study will be conclusive in that it will show there are no issues here, except for a couple of neighbors who seem to be attributing noises to the wind turbine, which are likely coming from something else.”
