As perhaps the finale to this series on flicker on Amherst, I thought it might be instructive to see just how much of the island is subject to flicker of any duration. I took the “0-hour” contour and mapped it to all the turbines.
I have to admit, even I was surprised at just how much of the island is affected. Earlier, John Harrison created a map with the flicker potential, using general rules. Those rules certainly weren’t big enough to count for the turbines we’re getting. Travel around the periphery and see how far you can get onto the Island before hitting a blue line. Perhaps worse, see how all those lines overlap, indicating you’ll be getting flicker from multiple turbines. Even those few people whose homes are spared will have to drive through it.
