Fairhaven Wind Turbines Will Stay On
The two wind turbines in Fairhaven did not stop turning Tuesday night. The town’s Board of Health had issued an order last month to Fairhaven Wind LLC, ordering the turbines to cease operations from 7pm to 7am, because of numerous complaints about noise. Turbine Manager Gordon Deane released a statement saying that officials of Fairhaven Wind, which owns the turbines, decided to turn them back on after Tuesdays Board of Health meeting failed to reach a consensus on a proposal submitted by Fairhaven Wind to address concerns about the turbines noise levels.
He added the turbines will be operating around the clock until Fairhaven Wind has a public hearing in front of the board of health or the parties reach some other acceptable form of compromise.
