Hallett Hill wind farm (Hallett 2) operator AGL Energy says it has completed comprehensive noise testing to confirm that it has fixed the tonality issue with the Hallett 2 wind turbines near Mt Bryan.
In December 2010, AGL identified that under certain wind conditions tones from the Hallett 2 wind turbines were audible at the nearest residence.
A number of turbines which are close to the residence were voluntarily shut down .
