Otis must be wary of wind’s drawbacks  

Credit:  Berkshire Eagle | 09/02/2015 | www.berkshireeagle.com/ ~~

I recently read that Otis voters overwhelmingly endorsed a $6.4 million wind power project. We are residents that live about one mile from the Hoosac Wind Turbine project. Our experience is that’s too close for rural residential neighborhoods to be invaded by an industrial wind turbine of this huge scale. Noise can be more than annoying and on numerous nights we have been awakened and left sleepless, making the next day difficult to say the least.

Another problem of being too close to such installations is strobing/flicker where light modified by the blades create a disturbing flashing of light and shadow that can be very disorienting and also result in affecting people’s health. Not limited to just us, many communities in Massachusetts and the world are having the same problems along with other issues in regard to industrial turbines.

Make sure you do no harm to the residents. Money is not worth a person’s health!
