The Wake of a Wind Turbine – A Personal Experience

Falmouth's Firetower Wind

Falmouth Resident Shares Lasting Turbine Troubles
By STEVEN WITHROW

Wind 1 and Wind 2, the two 1.65-megawatt turbines the Town of Falmouth installed on industrial-zoned land between 2009 and 2010, no longer turn or generate electricity.

However, Falmouth residents Neil P. Andersen and Elizabeth L. Andersen said they still feel the aftereffects from the turbines and from their legal fight against them.

At risk today is the couple’s house on Blacksmith Shop Road, a home that Mr. Andersen said last Tuesday, August 21, that he built in 1990 and to which he has made multiple additions over two decades.

Mr. Andersen said he and his wife are struggling to afford their mortgage after paying more than $100,000 in legal fees and with the resulting time away from his construction business.

The Town of Falmouth offered to buy the property in 2013, but the Andersens did not accept the offer.
