Proposed bill calls for study of industrial wind turbine health effects  

Credit:  National Wind Watch ~~

On January 18, 2018, Colorado Representative Paul Lundeen (El Paso Co.) introduced House Bill 18-1085, requiring “the department of public health and environment to research and compile information on the health effects of noise and stray voltage from industrial wind energy turbines on humans and animals”.

The bill specifies that results be reported to the general assembly by January 1, 2020, and presented to a joint legislative committee of reference.

After its introduction, the bill was referred to the House Transportation and Energy Committee.

Representative Lundeen has been hearing about issues associated with the 250-MW 145-turbine Golden West wind energy facility near Calhan in El Paso County since it started operating in 2015. Golden West is owned by Nextera Energy Partners, a subsidiary of Nextera Energy, formerly known as Florida Power and Light.
