Please check the maps in our documents and links page to see what the Marlborough wind project in North Gower-Richmond looks like, in terms of impact on the community.
One map shows the 2-km impact; this is based on the recent announcement by the Society for Wind Vigilance–a group of international scientists and health care professionals–that a 2-km setback is the MINIMUM for health and safety.
The other map shows the impact out to 3.2 km on property values. This is based on the 40% AVERAGE property value loss determined by U.S. real estate appraiser Michael McCann.
If you live in North Gower-Richmond, be sure to be sitting down before you look at the maps.
And then remember that then-president of Prowind Cathy Weston wrote to a news paper last year that “wind farms” have the effect of protecting agricultural land from further housing development. No kidding.
