Lowell: state wants GMP fine to fund more monitoring

LOWELL – The state wants Green Mountain Power to pay $5,000 to $50,000 in penalties for noise violations at the Lowell wind project last winter, enough to cover more extensive noise monitoring.

But a wind opponent who lives near some of the turbines, Shirley Nelson of Lowell, wants the maximum penalty possible of $140,000, saying GMP intentionally allowed the noise to happen – and continue. Nelson also wants full-time noise monitoring by an independent sound monitoring specialist.

GMP states that the wind turbine noise remained below set limits 99.6 percent during monitoring last winter.
