Greens senator asks to increase distance between wind turbines and homes  

Credit:  published in the JO Sénat, 1 May, 2014, page 1005, senat.fr ~~

Ms. Hélène Lipietz asks the Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development, and Energy about increasing the distance between the site of a large wind turbine to more than 500 meters from a home or future home, maintaining a distance of about 400 meters between each turbine, and encouraging individual use of micro-turbines.

The reason she asks are diverse, involving the lack of rigorous independent studies on the impact of large wind turbines on the health of neighbors, for example, by stress from noise, sleep disturbance, stroboscopic effect potentially triggering epileptic seizures.

She asks her to study increasing the circle of exclusion of these wind-scrapers near dwelling places until such studies are conducted, as well as strengthening citizen consultation and the possibility of supporting the development of micro-wind.

Awaiting the reply of the Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development, and Energy.

Written question no. 11440, from Hélène Lipietz (Seine-et-Marne – Ecolo): “Distances between wind turbine sites and homes”

Distances entre le lieu d’implantation d’une éolienne et des habitations
14 ème législature: Question écrite n° 11440 de Mme Hélène Lipietz (Seine-et-Marne – ECOLO)
publiée dans le JO Sénat du 01/05/2014 – page 1005

Mme Hélène Lipietz attire l’attention de Mme la ministre de l’écologie, du développement durable et de l’énergie au sujet de l’augmentation de la distance entre le lieu d’implantation d’une installation de grands aérogénérateurs éoliens à plus de 500 mètres d’une habitation (ou future habitation), tout en conservant un espacement d’environ 400 mètres entre chaque éolienne, et l’encouragement d’équipement des particuliers avec des installations micro-éoliennes.

Les raisons qu’elle évoque sont diverses : le manque d’études sérieuses et indépendantes quant à l’impact des grandes éoliennes sur la santé des riverains, comme par exemple la nuisance sonore, les troubles du sommeil, l’effet stroboscopique potentiel déclencheur de crise d’épilepsie.

Elle lui demande d’étudier l’agrandissement du cercle d’exclusion de ces gratte-ciel à vent autour des lieux d’habitation en attendant que les études soient menées, ainsi que le renforcement des consultations citoyennes et la possibilité d’aider au développement du micro-éolien.

En attente de réponse du Ministère de l’écologie, du développement durable et de l’énergie.
