Wind turbines are interfering with TV signal in Rogaland, authorities order temporary shutdown

The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) ordered the Vardafjellet wind power plant in Rogaland to stop all its turbines because they disturb the TV signal.

The turbines must be stopped until the problems have been fixed.

The NVE was informed that the newly built wind farm affected the neighbors’ TV signal this autumn.

The wind power plant was told to fix the issues by November 6. As the plant failed to do so, it was ordered to stop two of its turbines.

“This did not help, and thus the rest of the turbines must also be stopped,” NVE noted.

“The licensee has to send NVE a confirmation that the turbines have been stopped no later than November 16, 2020, at 3 PM,” NVE added.
