    Stockyardhill Industrial Wind Development Update

    Origin Energy has increased the turbine size by 75% without any community consultation and no new background noise monitoring or modeling being undertaken. The original permit approval for the turbine size was 2MW, now Origin is installing 3-3.5MW turbines – currently the biggest in the world. Neither the State or Federal Government, nor the Pyrenees Shire have insisted on a new Noise Impact Assessment to take into account the increase in size which will lead to more infrasound, noise and . . .

    What we know already but the Wind industry are trying to hide

    We know wind turbines generate audible, low frequency and infrasound noise and vibration. This has been measured inside and outside of sufferers’ homes. We know health problems (totally new, or old afflictions aggravated) start to appear around wind projects sited in most rural settings with turbines of 0.6MW or larger, co-incident with the start up of operations. We know that the health problems continue to emerge in more people and intensify as time exposure increases. We know that increasing turbine . . .

    Recent developments on wind turbine noise and health

    Our understanding of the clinical patterns of illness and the acoustics of wind turbine noise has increased significantly over the last year. We now understand that much of the pathology being reported by residents is related to chronic sleep deprivation and chronic physiological stress, in addition to the vestibular disorder symptoms which have been called “wind turbine syndrome” and include nausea, vertigo, balance disorders, ear pressure, and headaches. Recent work by Professor Con Doolan at Waterloo wind development in South . . .

    Wind Farms Can Generate Angst

    South Australians don’t want to live too close to industrial scale wind generators. We have more wind generation than any other State – in fact, we have one of the highest proportions in the world of wind power generation. More than half of Australia’s installed wind power is in South Australia. Wind-powered generation is seen as totally eco-friendly and green. However, concern is building over its cost, health effects and aesthetics. Community opposition to industrial scale wind generators is increasing. . . .

    Eastern Mount Lofty Ranges Landscape Guardians and Stop Keyneton Wind Farm

    There is a new organisation of concerned residents and landowners from the Keyneton, Eden Valley and Cambrai districts of South Australia. This group has been formed in response to a 57 turbine wind “farm” planned for the area. We have formed The Eastern Mount Lofty Ranges Landscape Guardians whose primary task is to ensure that all those that will be affected by the Keyneton and Eden Valley wind “farm” will have the full picture of the personal and environmental consequences. . . .
