State proposes new sound testing for Falmouth

The Boston Globe reports this week on the possibility of new sound testing for wind turbine installations across the state.

In a follow up story in the Salem News (5.22.12), Mayor Driscoll confirms that thus far there is  no evidence to suggest that the wind turbine at Winter Island will cause problems for neighbors. New wind tests in Falmouth show that one of the two turbines is louder than expected, but the turbine is an old model, not proposed for Salem. Read the Salem News story.
