Can Expectations Produce Symptoms From Infrasound Associated With Wind Turbines? Fiona Crichton, George Dodd, Gian Schmid, Greg Gamble, and Keith J. Petrie, University of Auckland, New Zealand Health Psychology, March 2013, doi:10.1037/a0031760 First paragraph: “Harnessing wind energy is a critical component of long-term strategies for securing sustainable power supply in countries throughout the world, with the potential to help address global climate change. However, recent opposition to wind farms has seen a substantial increase in rejection rates for new wind . . . Complete article »

President, National Wind Watch, a 501(c)(3) charity registered in Massachusetts and founded in 2005. I am its second president. 2. How did you become aware of the negative effects of wind turbines? . . . Complete article »
Size specifications of common industrial wind turbines
“Vestas and General Electric (GE) dominate the market for industrial wind turbines in the U.S. Many older U.S. facilities use NEG Micon turbines, and Vestas has absorbed that manufacturer. Other older facilities use turbines from Zond, which was acquired by Enron (the inventor of “green tags”), whose wind business GE acquired in turn to take over the racket. Information about Vestas models can be found at www.vestas.com, GE models at www.gepower.com/businesses/ge_wind_energy/en, Siemens Bonus models at www.powergeneration.siemens.com/en/windpower/products, Suzlon models at www.suzlon.com./product_overview.htm, . . .

Energy Consumption of Wind Facilities
Large wind turbines require a large amount of energy to operate. Other electricity plants generally use their own electricity, and the difference between the amount they generate and the amount delivered to the grid is readily determined. Wind plants, however, use electricity from the grid, which does not appear to be accounted for in their output figures … This is a copy of an AWEO web page.

Low Benefit of Industrial Wind
A concise collection of data. Summary: ¶ The addition of industrial wind power, which is nondispatchable and varies according to the wind, requires corresponding maintenance and eventually addition of back-up conventional power, along with expansion of transmission capacity. ¶ The accommodation of wind power causes thermal plants to run less efficiently, adding to financial costs and increasing emissions. ¶ Spinning standby power must be kept burning to cover the short-term fluctuations of wind power. Thus, while wind power may displace . . . Complete article »
