ANTRIM — The controversy that has long dogged Antrim Wind Energy continues, with a number of people who live near the site raising concerns about the amount of noise produced there.
On Wednesday, the N.H. Site Evaluation Committee held a virtual meeting during which members heard comments from neighbors of the facility. They said the wind farm, a nine-turbine facility that went into service on Dec. 24, 2019, has been a significant detriment to their quality of life.
The Site Evaluation Committee is a regulatory body formed by the N.H. Legislature tasked with approving and monitoring energy facilities in the state.
Amanda Buco, who said the wind turbines are behind her home, said the sound hasn’t been so bad recently. But back in May, she complained to the committee because at the time, she said, the noise was “extremely loud.”
She also questioned the methods being used to investigate noise complaints, saying that evaluations are being done when the turbines aren’t at maximum volume.
