Scituate: Wind turbine community group disinvited

A group of neighbors of the Scituate wind turbine, helped the town’s board of health to define what a study of noise emanating from the turbine would study. The group also wanted to include a study of shadow flicker caused by the turbine.

The turbine operator agreed to pay only for the noise study, so the town set aside the flicker study. Now, the group has evidence that the parent company of the turbine operator has significant financial challenges. They want to bring that information to the health board.

They asked for a place on the agenda of Monday night’s meeting. Scituate’s health Director informed the group, via email, the board needed no further information from them.

They have petitioned an article on the Town Meeting warrant and are preparing an informational meeting at the end of the month.


In the winter of 2012 arrival of the turbine blades in Scituate caused celebration.
