Wind turbine update

October 9th Tuesday the town will be giving a wind turbine update . Let’s hope the Seattle ,Washington engineering report will be made public at the Portsmouth Town Council Meeting . It’s been four months since the official break down of the turbine on June 15th. The turbine has been plagued with problems over the short three year life of the turbine !

The turbine cost three million dollars which equates to one million dollars a year ! A complete financial fiasco!

Someone needs to step up to the plate and explain how all these “mistakes” were made buying this turbine and why it didn’t last twenty years !

The town needs to review the setback to the town water tank and the current wind turbine. The company that sold the turbine to the town also prepared the report that said the turbine would not land on the water tank ! Maybe it’s time for a third party vendor to review the safety of the turbine location and the town water supply ?
