Noise expert attemps to quiet down noise complaints 

As requested by Frances Hogan, Brian Howe of EGC Engineering made an extended appearance at the Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh Council meeting on May 15 regarding wind turbine noise, vibration, and acoustics.

Howe, described at council as a noise expert, has worked on wind energy farms across the country and shared his experiences with those present.

“For example in Nova Scotia,” he said to the packed council chambers that included more than 20 area residents, “it was quite densely packed with 17 turbines. The closest turbine to a residence was about 300 metres, and there were probably six or seven within 1000 metres of another gentleman’s home.”

“Most of the time the sound was as we would expect, given the distances,” he said. “The problems occurred when low winds and fog carried the sound when the turbines were running.”
