MICHAEL A. COSTELLO, State Representative
Boston, MA 02133
Mayor Moak’s Energy Advisory Committee (Don’t EVER pin this group to Mayor Holaday) tried to clarify themselves today but they didn’t apologize for their dismissive attitude toward environmental and human concerns.
I just got wind of a new concern (Which I will have to do some research on) about the resonance issue from the Giant* Wind Turbine. Semiconductor manufacturers use a variety of resonant dielectric oscillators in their products. The Low-frequency noise from the turbine can actually affect electronic equipment. The first thing I am thinking is Rochester Electronics and MTI-Milliren among others. (I bet Rochester Electronics is happy they didn’t go for a Giant* Wind Turbine on their property!) Like I said, I will research this and post the proper documentation.
The Mayor is incorrect in one aspect. We already have a lot of technology companies in the industrial park. If this resonance is a real concern, will these companies have to expend cash they don’t have to shield themselves?
* Small wind turbines, geo-thermal, solar power, energy-efficient vehicles and improved building efficiency – you know what kind of postings I’ll have on the P. Preservationist? Nothing. All you’ll hear if anything are crickets (Oh, and the trains arriving and departing from the train station.)
