Wind Turbine Setbacks 2000 + Feet Nils Bolgen the program director and facilitator of Falmouth Wind
1 & 2 from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has changed the setbacks of
the commercial wind turbines to 2000 feet in May of 2013. Based of the
catastrophic health and finance issues in Falmouth the setbacks may be increased
even more during 2014.Here is the May 2013 Quote increasing the Massachusetts setbacks to
commercial megawatt turbines like that of Falmouth http://www.southcoasttoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20130526/NEWS/305260341"Nills Bolgen, who works with the Massachusetts Clean Energy
