New England has regional noise/vibration problems since the Block Island Wind Farm started. Indeed, one could note, regional wind turbines no longer typify “green energy.”
In addition to air storage batteries being secretly installed on Beavertail in Jamestown to facilitate retention of unpredictable wind power, the regional power grid has been secretly raised to a higher power level to capture more irregular wind power for investors. However, that higher grid power has caused widespread environmental pressure, including water and sewer pipe separations, gas line issues and vibrations. Yards, floors and in-house glass vibrate. Light bulb filaments and wall clock parts have separated.
A Little Compton guy, in January 2022, noted that a utility cable crossed from Massachusetts into Rhode Island near a beach where whales died and said the ground vibrated beneath his feet when he walked there. He added that the glass on his kitchen table vibrated, too.
A local electrician, with raised eyebrows, noted exploding grid equipment. Fire even started inside a house. He shrugged, “All’s kept hush, hush.”
Three pipes separated from two adjacent Jamestown houses, at the identical time, squirting water or sewage three feet into the air. The pipe guy from a private company, whom I’d hired at my own expense when the town ignored me, noted, “It’s not your pipes causing this; municipal power’s too high.”
Nine house pipes separated within a year on one Jamestown street. “It’s happening everywhere,” a local drain guy commented.
Weeks later, in Providence, a house pipe squirted water up from a bathroom wash basin drain for several days after National Grid guys with fancy military style jackets put bigger gas lines into the adjacent city streets, replacing smaller lines. Another hired drain guy said, “Municipal power’s too high.”
Higher power means more power and “higher bills.” On National Grid’s London website back in October 2020, the company boasted to investors about making piles of money in the state of Rhode Island. According to that website, the Rhode Island state government had promised National Grid and its affiliates that they could do any green energy project they wanted with absolutely no oversight or regulation from the state or federal government.
Thus, FERC ignored ISO New England’s raising the regional power grid from its historic low level, which was done to enable the capture of more irregular wind power for those investors.
Taxpayers now face higher utility bills. Our buildings and bodies face potential damage from daily vibrations. Health and the environment suffer.
This now proves that wind turbines in New England are no longer “green energy.”
