Attend the Brewster Planning Board Meeting Wednesday
6:30 in the Eddy School Cafeteria (directions at bottom)

Tomorrow we can support Cape Cod's best land-based wind proposal by speaking briefly in favor of the Brewster Freeman's Way Industrial Park Wind project at the Brewster Planning Board meeting for the project's Special Permit.
The two 1.8MW turbines will stand over 1,800 feet away from the closest resident who supports the project.
There is no better siting for a wind project on Cape Cod than the one proposed for the Freeman's Way Industrial Park. The two 1.8MW turbines will stand over 1,800 feet away from the closest resident (who supports the project) and is a model of well designed municipal wind projects. The benefits to the Town of Brewster and to all the other Cape and Vineyard Electric Cooperative members from the clean, renewable wind power will be significant.
Brewster is critical because the turbine project will give the population a positive municipal-sized wind experience here on the Cape. We will be able to move away from claims and hysteria that now attach themselves to even the best wind projects. The success of Brewster will be a major contribution to the future of right-sited wind on Cape Cod, where the benefits from our excellent wind resource should be enjoyed.
The future of land-based wind on Cape Cod rides on the Brewster project. Please join us at the Eddy School tomorrow night to support right-sited wind on Cape Cod.
