      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 Center, said his organization has become "more conservative" in requiring project proposals seeking funding to provide more detailed data if they are close to residential areas."

"In 2005, when the Center began requiring applicants to provide acoustical data, Bolgen said it was done on an "ad hoc" basis."

"Now, all turbine proposals within 2,000 feet of residences must provide that data."

Folks, The Mass Clean Energy Center the very people that sold the turbines to Falmouth and the Webb/Notus turbines have admitted through the news media they made a mistake placing turbines on an "ad hoc " basis. The Town of Falmouth is the owner of the turbines and is responsible for the failure to do "due diligence" installing the turbines. There was plenty of news in Mattapoisett, Marion ,Fairhaven and Rochester prior to the installation about setbacks to residential homes and the Falmouth Energy Committee and Falmouth Select Board made a choice to ignore the public information . The Town of Falmouth is on the hook for this giant health and financial fiasco

AD HOC... Latin phrase meaning "for this". It generally signifies a solution designed for a specific problem or task, non-generalizable, and not intended to be able to be adapted to other purposes (compare a priori). Common examples are organizations, committees, and commissions for a specific task. Ad hoc CAN ALSO MEAN makeshift solutions, shifting contexts to create new meanings, inadequate planning, or improvised events.
