Court ruling forces shutdown of second turbine

The Falmouth Board of Selectmen halted operation of the town’s second wind turbine June 20, after a Barnstable County Superior Court judge deemed the town-owned power source a nuisance.

Members met in emergency session around 6 PM after learning Judge Cornelius J. Moriarty II affirmed the Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals’s position on turbines Wind 1 and Wind 2, said Town Manager Julian M. Suso. They will meet again in executive session, closed to the public, on June 26, to discuss the town’s options, Mr. Suso said.

The case is one of several to involve the turbines, which have served as lightning rods for litigation since work on the first began in 2009. Officials were forced to power down Wind 1 in September 2015, also because of legal action.
