KINGSTON — The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has agreed to commission a shadow flicker study of Kingston’s wind turbines.

CEC made this commitment Friday at a meeting at the State House Friday that Rep. Tom Calter, D-Kingston, arranged. The meeting also included Kingston officials, concerned Country Club Way resident Tim Dwyer and officials from the state departments of environmental management and public health.

“It was simply an opportunity to ask questions,” Calter said.

Calter said the meeting was the result of a two-part commitment he made to a group of residents in February. The first part was ensuring that DEP would provide quality control support as part of the Independence acoustical monitoring study.

The second was to arrange a meeting at which DEP and DPH would present the results of a study of available data on noise, flicker and vibration from wind turbines. That was the meeting Friday at the State House.
