Wind Turbine in Your Back Yard?
Wind Turbine in Your Back yard? Well residents of the North Kingstown Green subdivision have the 413 foot wind turbine going up behind the wind turbine owners yard off Ten Rod Road in North Kingstown. The subdivision home developer for this neighborhood is putting the wind turbine behind his home.
It is the developer's energy company, Wind Energy Development LLC, that is constructing it and placing it right smack in RI real estate. Yes, it is a renewable energy source which is good but it has raised local concerns. Are North Kingstown homes for sale ready for this energy source?
Now there are mixed feelings about this wind turbine from North Kingstown residents. All of the subdivision homeowners knew about it before the the wind turbine was built- they signed off on it. North Kingstown Green is a newer home development that has grown in homes over the last several years so it definitely impacts these homeowners in many ways. These homeowners were promised a $150 monthly check towards their electric bill from the savings generated by the wind turbine. So there are renewable energy rewards to reap here which enticed these locals to agree to its location.
Portsmouth RI, across the Bay, had a wind turbine for years but it is no longer functioning, the company that built it is bankrupt and the town can not come up with the hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix it. So it remains an eyesore. I am not sure that the potential failure consequences of the wind turbine were thought out well if the manufacturer does not exist anymore?
The size of the wind turbine is another matter as well in the neighborhood. Some homeowners have had second thoughts about it and were trying to sell to no avail. Have you experienced this in your backyard and how has your town dealt with it? How does it impact property values...well time will tell here. Hopefully for these North Kingstown homeowners it proves to be a moot point. Wind Turbine in Your Back yard?
