Wind Turbines study group to report to selectmen on Jan. 18

FALMOUTH – A joint meeting between the Falmouth Wind Turbine Options Analysis Process (WTOP) and the Falmouth Board of Selectmen is scheduled from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18 at the Herman Room of the Falmouth Public Library, 300 Main St.

WTOP is expected to present its final recommendations to the selectmen on how the town should proceed with regards to its two wind turbines, WInd 1 and Wind 2. For the past two and a half years, the turbines have been a source of dissention among Falmouth residents and public officials, with those living near the turbines claiming serious sleep disturbances and adverse health effects, and property owners claiming the values of their homes is depreciating. Meanwhile, town officials continue to weigh these concerns with the economic and environmental issues involved with the turbines.

The WTOP has met more than 25 times since May to explore options for the long-term future of Falmouth’s turbines. WTOP stakeholder representatives include both town officials and residents who experienced adverse impacts of the turbines. Additionally, two members of the board of selectmen and one representative from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Department (MassCED) attended but did not actively participate in the discussions.

There will be no public comments allowed on Jan. 18. However, a subsequent meeting is expected, though not yet scheduled, for the public to share its comments.
