Wind farms will forever change Newfound Lake  

Credit:  Concord Monitor | January 25, 2013 | www.concordmonitor.com ~~

We, New Hampshire Wind Watch, have been contacted by a considerable number of local residents, summer residents, vacationers and regional citizens regarding the proposals for two additional wind turbine farms around Newfound Lake.

Knowing that we already have three renewable energy plants in our area, I would like to voice my profound concern regarding these two proposals. These 454-foot industrial structures will be built near the lake, they will be built close to our watershed, they will have a detrimental impact on our wildlife habitats and they will become an unacceptable defining characteristic of our local landscape.

The proposed sites are only a few miles from the Newfound Lake shoreline. Many residents and visitors will find their lake experience overshadowed by these industrial developments. The landscape will forever change both during the day and at night.

Furthermore, Newfound Lake and the surrounding area will be unacceptably harmed by the proximity and number of turbines. Some 90-plus turbines will have a dominating and overbearing impact.

Wind turbines are extremely inefficient and costly. They will always need to be backed up by conventional power stations in New Hampshire because they are an intermittent source of energy.

We would be extremely grateful if you all could voice your opinion against wind turbines in New Hampshire. And keep us updated on wind turbine projects in your area, as we can be a great resource. We are very proud of our area as you are of yours.
