KINGSTON – The Board of Health has received a response from Kingston Wind Independence to its request that company officials consider taking action to mitigate the noise and flicker concerns of residents.

The letter reviewed by town counsel Monday essentially says that while willing to meet with the town about possible mitigation, the Independence turbine owners prefer to wait for the results of a sound study they have commissioned from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

It’s not the kind of response Board of Health Chairman Joe Casna said he wanted from the town’s business partner in the turbine project. The town leases the land for the turbine and receives an economic benefit from its operation.

“I wish that the commitment was more aggressive in terms of working toward mitigating measures,” he said.
