Some residents of a town in New York’s Catskill Mountains are not happy with actor Judd Hirsch.
The star of the old ”Taxi” T-V show is looking to build a 54-meter wind turbine on his 39 hectare property in Denning.
Dozens of his neighbours have signed a petition.
One man, who lives about two kilometres from Hirsch says the turbine ”would ruin the beauty” of the area.
Another neighbour is in favour of alternative energy but worries that the turbine will be noisy.
The 78-year-old Hirsch argues his neighbours’ fears are ”baloney.”
He says the wind turbine’s generator will cut his electricity bill to zero.
