Windmill opponents air their grievances

Opponents of large windmill projects attended a panel discussion in the ECC North auditorium Tuesday sponsored by state Senator Robert Ortt.

Those in attendance were told neighbors can’t hear the most damaging sounds from the turbines, inaudible low frequency sounds.

“The scale of wind turbine noise in the United States is not unsimilar to what happened when jet aircraft started proliferating,” said noise control engineer Rob Rand. “Although what I’m seeing in the wind turbine deployment is that there’s very little to no noise impact assessment.”

Several of the speakers say they visited and studied areas near large wind farms and felt the ill-effects said to be felt by nearby residents, like spatial disorientation and sleep deprivation.

Michigan State University audiologist Jerry Punch has studied the turbines for years.

“Setbacks are intended to protect physical safety such as blade throw and ice throw and blade failure and all those things are simply not sufficient to protect people from health issues,” Punch said.

John Baker was there as he decides his future as a resident and landowner along the Lake Ontario shore.

“I’m concerned about the impact of the property values in lieu of the STAMP program that’s coming into the Alabama area. I may want to sell my property and I don’t want it devalued if I do decide to sell it,” Baker said.

The STAMP program was a proposed large solar panel factory in Genesee County.
