On December 19, WERU 89.9 FM radio in Maine conducted a lengthy interview with residents living near the Fox Island Wind Farm located in Vinalhaven, an island community about 12 miles off the coast of Maine. The wind facility, consisting of 3 GE 1.5 MW wind turbines, was commissioned on November 17, 2009. This video (parts 1 of 2) was compiled using excerpts of the interview. Those speaking are describing their experience of living with turbine noise. The images appearing in this video are not from Vinalhaven, however, they are actual photos of other locations in North America where towers were sited very close to homes. The entire interview can be heard on WERU 89.9 FM at http://archives.weru.org/voices/weeke... . Visit www.windaction.org for more information on turbine noise. (This video is intended to replace an earlier version uploaded to YouTube on Dec 21, 2009.)
