The Board finds that Wind 1 has a total sound power of roughly 110dB(A) as expressed  by its manufacturer in written documents presented to the Board. 54.
 
The Board finds that an appropriate setback based on the McCunney et. al. chart (and applying the true sound power level of the Vestas V-82 stall regulated turbines) would be roughly 900 meters, more than double the distance specified by the applicant. 55.
 
The Board found credible the following application of the McCunney et. al setback formula, and notes the large number of homes within the Ontario minimum setback of 550 meters, and the much larger number of homes shown within the 900 meters needed to satisfy the McCunney et. Al. formula: 35.
 
The Board finds that a setback of 400 meters (distance away from closest home at 211 Blacksmith Shop Rd.) is inadequate according to the Ontario and the McCunney et. al criteria setback requirements of a minimum of 550 and 900 meters respectively.

Again, it was lies by the wind shills that got these placed in Falmouth.  These towers were a nuisance from the first day they started operation and the State of Massachusetts and their Governor, that commie Obama buddy, Duval Patrick, pushed through more and more ridiculous sitings.  The cuts to the EPA and DOE should help dry up the subsidy money and chase the windies away forever.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
