Dismissing Wind Turbine Syndrome

(Continued)

Newburyport officials have put considerable time into studying the proper way to site wind turbines, and it seems unlikely that another will be built here. Newbury and Amesbury have also been eyed as proposed wind turbine locations.

Wind turbines are best sited in places where they can take full advantage of strong prevailing winds, are close to existing power infrastructure and reasonably far away from homes. The "syndrome" may not exist, but that doesn't lessen the importance of siting wind turbines in locations where they'll be no more of an annoyance than a gentle breeze.
