The wind turbine is proposed for the high knoll near the harbor master’s office on the west side of Winter Island, directly across from Salem Harbor Power Station. To illustrate the area that the wind turbine would occupy, a group of climate change activists took some photos at Winter Island on September 24, 2011. The photo below shows all of the riders inside the 15-foot diameter circle that represents the size of the monopole supporting the turbine.

There is no reason to believe that the wind turbine would have to be fenced in or that any buffer zone that would prevent full use of the land around the turbine.
