Business as usual for wind farm operator despite noise study

Renewable energy company Pacific Hydro has ruled out any changes to its operations at a wind farm in south-west Victoria, after a study into impacts on nearby residents.

Pacific Hydro last month released a report that linked sensations reported by residents near its Cape Bridgewater wind farm to low-frequency noise.

The study’s Steven Cooper addressed more than 150 people in Portland last night.

Pacific Hydro’s Lane Crockett said no causal link had been proven between the frequencies and residents’ observations and the company would not change its Cape Bridgewater operations.

“There’s nothing that came out of the report that suggests that we should,” he said.

“There’s an unverified hypothesis that Steven Cooper’s come up with.”

Study participant Sonia Trist is disgusted by the response.

“I found it cold and hateful really,” she said.

Pacific Hydro also announced it was closing complaints that led to the commissioning of the report and said the study did not justify compensation.
