Casna asks Ruiz to shut down KWI Turbine during Winter Storm Nemo

KINGSTON- Joseph Casna, the Chairman of Kingston’s Board of Health, has contacted Kially Ruiz requesting that the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine be “shutdown” for the duration of Winter Storm Nemo.

Casna said he made the request to Ruiz after being contacted by Doreen and Sean Reilly, residents of Leland Road who are claiming ill-health effects from the KWI Turbine.

“At the request of a few residents I sent an email to Kially Ruiz today requesting that he shut the turbine down during the blizzard,” Casna said in an voicemail to the Journal.

Kially Ruiz is the co-manager of the KWI Turbine, which spins atop of Kingston’s capped landfill along Route 3.

As of 3:51 p.m., nine minutes before Governor Patrick’s travel ban went into effect this afternoon, the KWI Turbine was still turning. At 4:23 p.m., Kingston was reporting sustained winds of 27 m.p.h. with gusts to 39 m.p.h., according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Winds are expected to reach Tropical Storm strength, with gusts to 60 m.p.h., in Kingston tonight during the worst effects of Winter Storm Nemo, according to the NWS.

Before the travel ban went into effect this afternoon, the Journal visited the KWI Turbine and took the footage below. Click play on the embedded video below to watch.
