We had to abandon our house

RE: “State to look beyond local regs for Stiles Brook wind project” [News, Dec. 2]:

Windham residents need to protect their community from all wind developers.

InvEnergy’s application in Vermilion County, Ill. said that the noise would not cause sleep disturbance. Eleven months after InvEnergy’s turbines started operations 1,665 feet and 2,225 feet from our home, we abandoned it to move to a mobile home trailer 8 miles away.

That was in December 2013. Our house remains for sale, and there are no prospective buyers. Nobody wants to live in a wind farm. We are stuck with a wonderful house next to health-destroying wind turbines.

Ogden, Ill.
