Proximity to homes of proposed Kahuku wind farm raises concerns among residents

A proposed wind farm in Kahuku is raising concerns among residents who worry about living close to turbines.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser (http://is.gd/VaYoQ9) says California-based developer developer Champlin GEI Wind Holdings proposing the project has scheduled a public meeting Wednesday with a doctor to speak on the health effects of wind turbines.

The first phase of the 15-turbine project calls for eight wind turbines to be erected in the hills inland of the Kamehameha Highway. The Kahuku Mauka Village neighborhood is about 2,000 feet from the nearest proposed turbine.

Wednesday’s speaker is Robert McCunney of Harvard Medical School. McCunney was part of a team of experts commissioned by industry to look at perceived health effects of wind turbines.

His report says there is no evidence of adverse effects on humans.
