After reading the June 26 OpEd by the Pisgah Mountain wind project developer, I had to comment.
Property rights work both ways. When the supposed “science” of wind turbine siting allows them placed too close to homes, something is amiss. With many lawsuits in Mars Hill, maybe it is time to rethink the regulations and demand more setbacks.
Any tax breaks or bribes will be quickly lost when we all have to pay for new transmission lines, and town officials go on a spending spree. It is not worth throwing one’s neighbors under a bus in support of a developer who does not even live near his proposed turbines.
After camping two miles from the Rollins windsprawl and hearing the turbines roar and thrum all night, making it impossible to sleep, I object to any turbines within 100 miles of any bodies of water. Maine deserves protection.
