    Oregon Wind Energy Health Impact Assessment  

    Source:  Oregon Public Health Division | Action alerts, Comments, Health, Oregon

    Draft report released January 3, 2012

    The Oregon Public Health Division spent the last year responding to questions from the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE), local health departments, and community members in Eastern Oregon about the potential health impacts of wind energy facilities on Oregon communities.

    The draft Wind Energy Health Impact Assessment is a tool to help community members, elected officials and ODOE understand and respond to health-related questions about wind energy developments in Oregon.

    This initial HIA on wind energy is not focused on a specific facility or community. Rather, it focuses more broadly on what is currently known about the health impacts from wind farms, and the policies and standards used to site wind facilities in Oregon.
