Iberdrola owns CMP. CMP gave you a rate hike for the project.
Oberdrola wants Industrial Scale Wind everywhere. Wake up Maine.
Ten minutes of subjection to a noise that cannot really be described. Try living near these Industrial Turbines.
The reason why you have "NO" complaints at all from a large number of people living near a turbine is because they have sold easements to the WIND company. These easements are perpetual, meaning they transfer to each buyer, meaning no way of preventing "child abuse" of future children of the property. This sort of cash payment for a perpetual easement should be out lawed.
Who is Simon Chapman?
"Are you prepared to explain why you do not reference the peer reviewed published work of Dr Daniel Shepherd and his colleagues, when you discuss the evidence for damage to health caused by industrial wind turbines in your public statements? Shepherd’s work was published a year ago, in October, 2011."
The press is spreading the complaints????? Please, a news story ?
The citizens from Byron and Woodstock Maine felt the need to write letters to the editors of local papers and complain to news media. Enforcement of noise compliance was left in the hands of the developer. No protection of the receptors.
You say "anxious" personalities are subject to "nocebo" effect. Sooo.. autistic children, heart conditions and stress victims are not to be counted?
The World Health Organization notes that "Measurable effects of noise on sleep begin at LAeq levels of about 30 dB. ... When noise is continuous, the equivalent sound pressure level should not exceed 30 dB(A) indoors, if negative effects on sleep are to be avoided. For noise with a large proportion of low-frequency sound [dB(C)] a still lower guideline value is recommended."
Your insinuation of a Massachusetts community cries foul is so "wrong".
Fairhaven has proven that the WIND company deliberately did not run one of the turbines in a sound test.
when a turbine catches on fire and the fire fighters can't fight back. There should be an emergency ban on WIND turbine operations during high fire.
