Wind Turbine Noise  

Author:  | Health, Noise

Summary.
This article has reviewed information on wind turbine noise which is familiar to the author. The information was from studies in the United States and abroad. The most recent information was all land-based. Despite reassurances by the developers of wind farms and the industry, there is evidence to support the existence of a health problem under some conditions and for some people with wind turbines, which appears to be tied to the infrasound or low frequency portion of the acoustic emissions of the turbine. It is important for scientists and engineers to acknowledge the problem and to work to eliminate it for affected residents who were the industry’s supporters. It is unfortunate that many of the affected citizens feel disenfranchised by their governments in response to this issue.
