Falmouth Wind Turbine Victim Gets 22 percent decline in property value   http://falmouth.patriotproperties.com/Summary.asp?AccountNumber=8020  

April 18, 2014

Contrary to Mass. CEC’s claim of no loss of value because of nearby wind turbine placement, my Falmouth home and half acre at 27 Ridgeview Drive in Craggy Ridge was this week granted an abatement of $855 on this year’s property tax by Falmouth’s Board of Assessors.    

That is ~$132,000 off of their $589,500 initial assessment.    

This is a 22% decline.  

In January of 2012 my home was valued at $714,000 for a refinance.    

This coupled with the Falmouth ZBA’s 4-0 decision that the turbines are indeed a nuisance with a mitigation order to the Town should begin to convince many local residents of the detriment wind turbines impose on their property value when these TOO CLOSE TOO BIG wind turbines are situated in their back/front yards.     

If logical reasoning of health and quality of life issues has not opened your eyes, these numbers should significantly improve your vision.  

Sincerely, Barry Funfar

Question: When will the Mass CEC be taken to task for the reckless expenditure of Rate-Payer funds that are being used to publish reports that are solely intended to deny and/or refute the reality of MA residents who live TOO CLOSE to wind turbines (AKA power plants)?

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center should be brought up on RICO Act charges for the use of renewable energy tax money collected from all residential and commercial electric rate users in Massachusetts. The Mass CEC produced wind turbines reports that they knew left out negative information about the harm to local residents. Present and past members of Governor Patrick executive appointed positions who now work for the wind industry should be brought up on charges. Leaving information out of reports is the same as fraud !
