Bridgewater NH Resists Wind Farm Project

Bridgewater NH Resists Wind Farm Project

Nov 23, 2012

Proposed Wind Farm Project

While we support the concept of sustainable energy, the Board of Selectmen opposes additional construction of wind turbines in the Newfound Area. The new Groton wind farm is sufficient and further clustering on the ridge adjacent to Cardigan Mountain is unwise and unnecessary.  Tourism is the major economic engine of this area and the proposed project endangers that financial foundation. In addition the State of NH is a net exporter of electricity and the power from all those towers will not benefit the citizens of this state. For example, one small biomass plant (wood to energy) produces more electricity than the new (23 towers) Groton wind farm! Biomass plants create jobs far greater than wind farms. Alexandria and Bridgewater have biomass plants and with the Groton facility, we have enough sustainable energy projects in this area. The proposed wind farm has the potential for more harm than good.

The bottom line as stated by the Town of Bridgewater Selectmen: “The Board opposes this project.
