Consultant to study wind farm noise  

P.E.I. has hired a consultant to review the level of noise coming from wind turbines at the new Eastern Kings Wind Farm.

Some people living in the area complain the noise is keeping them up at night. One resident says he may move if the noise problem continues.

“We’re going to have monitors set up right at the wind farm, another monitor probably halfway between the wind farm and the individual’s house and then we’ll have the third one at the individual’s house – outside,” Environment Minister Jamie Ballem told CBC News Wednesday.

“We’ve also asked the people to record or keep a diary. So that way we can find out if it’s wind conditions, are the turbines even turning, which direction is the wind, so we can really narrow down what the issue is here.”

The government has hired the consulting firm of Jacques Whitford to do the study. The final report will be presented to the government in a few weeks with any recommendations for change.
