FALMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) – Two wind turbines owned by the town of Falmouth were demolished on Monday after they were ordered to dismantle them following a legal action brought by people who live there.
The video shows the moment one of the turbines was demolished. SKY7HD also captured the huge wind turbine lying on its side after being demolished. The second wind turbine should be dismantled on Monday, October 3.
The two 1.65 megawatt wind turbines were installed in 2010 and 2012 respectively. The Massachusetts Superior Court shut down the two city-owned wind turbines in June 2017 following noise complaints and lawsuits from area residents , which also prompted a Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection study to examine noise levels in more detail.
