SHEFFIELD, Vermont — A couple that challenged a Sheffield wind project, saying their health was threatened by it, say the project has reduced the value of their property.
The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1uCYYYD) Steven and Luann Therrien have appealed their property appraisal, saying the impact of the First Wind turbines makes it almost impossible to sell. They say it's worth less than the $86,900 value placed on it.
The property consists of a single story, 980-square-foot house with one bedroom, a kitchen and a half-bath, all heated by a space heater. The house is off the grid and sits on 49 acres.
During a meeting with the Sheffield Board of Civil Authority, Therrien said he had recently listed the property for sale at $125,000, but that listing expired in June.
