Final farewell to a wind energy debacle  

Credit:  Final Farewell to a Wind Energy Debacle | Accountability for Deception and Misrepresentation Absent | June 8, 2022 | mjoecool.wordpress.com ~~

According to the June 6 Cape Cod Times (see timeline for article) a contract award has been given to Atlantic Coast Dismantling LLC to demolish Falmouth’s two municipal wind turbines. It’ll come with a reported cost of nearly $40K with additional funds to be determined for electrical work and site restoration.

The other notable town taxpayer cost cited in the article, a minimum payment of $975,000 to resolve the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Grant used to purchase and construct Falmouth’s second wind turbine. You may recall that the original ARRA Grant converted to a loan when the wind turbines were ordered by the Court to stop operations due to causing a condition of nuisance.

The State and the State’s consultant representation (MA Clean Energy Center) incentivized the town’s staff stooges that bigger wind turbines would translate into a bigger revenue stream. Town taxpayers, the innocent lemmings in all of this, were sold a bill of goods; industrial-size wind turbines knowingly could not be safely located in residential neighborhoods. The cast of characters having complicity in this debacle is far reaching.

Yet, for all the lies and deciet, all the hundreds of sleepless nights, all the millions of taxpayer dollars to reach this point – the root cause of my issue is Falmouth taxpayers will be levied another million dollars.

For what?

A lesson of trust in government accountability?
