Falmouth To Decide Whether To Tear Down Wind Turbines

A Cape Cod town is now considering becoming the first community in the country to tear down its wind turbines.

Falmouth’s two turbines have been controversial since the first one was installed in 2010.

Some neighbors have persistently complained about the noise from the turbines and also attribute a range of ailments to them, from dizziness, to headaches to memory loss. But other residents have reported no problems.

Some in Falmouth say it’s far too soon to tear down a critical renewable energy project they estimate could produce $450,000 in revenues for the town annually.

The town would have to borrow $14 million to tear the turbines down.  Falmouth’s Town Meeting assembly will decide whether to put the question about borrowing the money to voters in May.
