This 292-foot wind turbine recently erected in Newburyport, MA is located just 319-feet from the public pedestrian rail trail, 350-feet from heavily-traveled U.S. Route 1 (in the foreground), and 800-feet from the nearest residence. See: http://www.windaction.org/faqs/18868 for information on potential safety risks.

This photo of the Newburyport wind turbine (292-feet tall) was taken from at the rear property line of a nearby residence. The residents in the area have expressed their concerns to the city about noise, flicker, ice throws and other safety issues.
The 262-foot turbine located at Holy Name Central Catholic Junior Senior High School towers over all structures in the area.
Balloons were flown in Newburyport, MA to demonstrate the height of the proposed industrial wind turbine. Two balloons on a single tether were flown to show the height of the tower and the overall height including the structure including the blades. The balloons are white and difficult to distinguish against the white clouds. The height of the proposed turbine, 300-feet, far exceeds the height of all other objects in the area.
New computer simulations of Cape Wind provide views of how the project will look from some of the state's favorite vacation spots. Here's a view from Oak Bluffs in Martha's Vineyard.
