KINGSTON – In an about face, the Independence turbine owners at Kingston Wind Independence are refusing to participate a long-awaited acoustic monitoring study.

This information was not available at press time.

This week the turbine owners released a statement accusing local residents of making “false, baseless and inflammatory statements” in the media. They did not say they won’t be participating in the study.

They left that to Alicia Barton, chief executive officer and executive director of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center that was overseeing the study.

“We have also consulted with MassDEP to discuss whether MassDEP has the authority to seek cooperation from KWI in order to allow the collection of acoustic data to proceed,” she said in a letter to town officials and interested residents. “We expect that MassDEP will work directly with town officials to explore those possibilities.”

Needless to say, town officials are scrambling to decide what to do next. The Board of Health will meet at 6 p.m. Monday night and the Board of Selectmen will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday night with the turbines expected to be a hot topic of discussion.
