    800-pound gorilla

    I got back from Iraq in 2007 with two turbines within 1,000′ across the road on a neighbor’s property. Then the noise started, followed by shadow flicker when fall rolled around. I contacted my Jackson County Minnesota planning & zoning director who said everything was done to state specifications. He gave me the contact information to the company that was managing the wind turbines. That started a long battle with are they noisy, how noisy are they, there is no . . .

    Public Consultation on NHMRC Draft Information Paper: Evidence on Wind Farms and Human Health

    Closes on Friday, 11 April 2014, 05:00pm (AEDT) NHMRC is currently seeking feedback on a draft Information Paper: Evidence on Wind Farms and Human Health, which provides the Australian community with a summary of the evidence on whether wind farms cause adverse health effects in humans.

    RES aim to drastically change all-important amplitude modulation (AM) noise conditions

    A long-threatened planning application obviously aimed to demolish our unprecedented noise planning condition has been submitted to the West Devon Borough Council. It is now perfectly clear that corporate developer Renewable Energy Systems’ (RES) primary intent is for protecting corporate welfare rather than the well-being of local communities surrounding the proposed nine 120 metres (394 feet) high Den Brook wind turbines. For more than 18 months we have been cajoled with specious evidence of false positives, threats of unenforceability and . . .

    Stray voltage and other threats to pipeline safety

    Charles Rhodes, Xylene Power Recently an Illinois resident named Julie Newhouse sought my expert opinion with respect to a proposed wind farm to be built in Boone County, Illinois, adjacent to an existing major Enbridge oil pipeline. I am told that this wind farm is to include numerous wind generators geographically distributed close to the pipeline route. I believe that the wind farm developer contemplates generator interconnection via home run buried cable. Most wind farms are located in rural areas . . .

    Comments re Goulais Wind Farm

    Summary: The proponent, Sprott Power Corp, has failed to demonstrate that the Goulais Wind Farm will provide advantages to Algoma District. There is high risk that impact on tourism will be adverse, a subject that is inadequately addressed. The setbacks to neighbouring property lines do not provide adequate safety from known failures, and the provided documentation that claims accidents are of low frequency or that root causes have been addressed have not been adequately provided. The noise assessment fails to . . .
