In a surprise move, one that reverses a decision made by the FAA at an earlier time, a new decision was made about the approved FAA wind turbines, which were scheduled to be erected in the state of Massachusetts. This wind energy story started with a proposal made by the Massachusetts Army National Guard to place 17 wind turbines at the Massachusetts Military Reservation on Cape Cod. At first, eight of the FAA wind turbines were approved, but within a week this decision was reversed and only three of the original eight approved were found to meet standards for FAA wind turbines. According to the agency, the five that were approved and then later denied posed a safety hazard because they would stand 400 feet tall, leading the charge that they were dangerous at over 200 feet to aircraft in the area.
