A warning to Savoy about wind turbines  

Credit:  Letter: A warning to Savoy about wind turbines | The Berkshire Eagle | September 19, 2017 | www.berkshireeagle.com ~~

People of Savoy: It is wise to learn from your mistakes and even wiser to learn from the mistakes of others. I live in Scituate, 3,200 feet from a single 1.5 MW wind turbine. Six years ago the wind industry came to town and sold a bill of goods to our town officials. They said that the turbine would not have any negative impact on the community and they believed it, for they were persuasive and very believable.

For the last five years my neighbors and I have suffered from sleep deprivation, ringing of the ears, dizziness and shadow flicker. We are woken from a sound sleep and because of the noise cannot get back to sleep. Over that time period we have submitted hundreds of complaints, brought petitions before the Board of Health and Selectmen; but all that has been ineffective in gaining relief. The fight to rid our homes of this intrusive noise seems to have no end.

If you think five 2.5 MW wind turbines will be quiet you are wrong. You should come to my house and listen to a single 1.5 MW turbine that is 3,200 feet away. There is a reason why the courts ordered the two turbines in Falmouth to permanently shut down. And why do you think that the town did not appeal that decision? They understood that they had made a mistake in allowing them to be installed in the first place.

Don’t you make a mistake!

David Dardi,

Scituate
