Wind turbines  

Credit:  March 25, 2015 | www.myeasternshoremd.com ~~

I recommend extreme caution in accepting anything that Apex’s sales representatives have to say as “fact.” Among their many untruths is that the wind turbines “do not affect property values of nearby homes,” when there is irrefutable evidence that nearby homes can become virtually uninhabitable and nearly worthless.

Victims of other industrial wind turbine projects testify to all sorts of adverse health effects, often summarized as “Wind Turbine Syndrome.” Apex denies that WTS exists, but it is an affliction officially recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is associated with sleep loss, migraines, nausea, vertigo, blurred vision, unsteadiness, difficulty reading, remembering and in thinking spatially.

These turbines have even greater impact on birds and bats, which they kill in large numbers. Apex refers to these deaths as “limited,” but we know that to be untrue, especially when referring to eagles and other raptors.

I moved to Chesterville 30 years ago to rescue a National Register of Historic Places property and to enjoy the peace and quiet and the community of Kent County. Now, if Apex is successful, my house will be surrounded by at least seven 500-foot towers, all within 1 mile. Between the noise, the “flicker” and the destruction of the view-scape, my home will become uninhabitable and virtually unsalable, as would those of all of my neighbors.

The land-owners that chose to deal with Apex will certainly gain financially but at the cost of destroying our community. They should think about that before committing themselves and their heirs to 50 years of life under these destructive machines.
