A group of homeowners living near Consumers Energy wind turbines in Riverton and Summit townships are currently suing the company for damages they say are caused by operating the turbines.

There are 17 people who have joined as plaintiffs in the case, which was filed Monday.

The plaintiffs cite: frequent and highly disturbing noise from the turbines, vibrations or pulse sensations caused by the blades passing the pedestals, a flicker or strobe effect caused by sunlight through the blades, glare from sunlight on the turbines and flashing red light on the turbines for causing their inability to sleep, headaches and pressure, ringing or aching of the ears, dizziness, stress and tension, extreme fatigue, diminished ability to concentrate and nausea.

They are seeking damages in excess of $25,000 and a order for the company to cease and desist its wind turbine activity.

Consumers Energy spokesman Daniel Bishop said the company had no immediate comment about the lawsuit late Friday afternoon.

The 56-turbine park began operations on Thanksgiving Day 2012.
