Industrial wind energy: Discussion on nuisance and negligence actions relating to noise and health

Author:  Neville, Tania

ABSTRACT. There is a growing body of information, data, opinion, litigation and complaint surrounding the proliferation of industrial wind turbine developments worldwide. Governments have been quick to adopt the purported clean energy benefits of such development but slow to advance and implement appropriate guidelines, enforcement mechanisms and a means to examine what appears to be a growing public health issue related to noise. This paper reviews case law to date and current health and independent noise data that indicate litigation . . .

Noise, flicker, health and safety

Author:  Wiser, Ryan; Yang, Zhenbin; et al.

Noise from wind turbines can be a problem, especially for those living within close range. Possible impacts can be characterized as both audible and sub-audible (i.e., infrasound). There are claims that sub-audible sound, that is, below the nominal audible . . .

The Town has previously been provided with the Octave Band Data/Sound performance for the V82 turbine. This shows that the turbine normally operates at 103.2dB but the manufacturer has also stated that it may . . .
