Wind turbine sound: The neighbors speak
A story on the new wind farms that have sprung up in western Indiana during the past two years provides a useful perspective on the sometimes-mentioned issue of wind turbine sound:
And when it comes to noise, nobody seems to take issue.
"I don't hear them at all," said Charlene Deckard.
"In the house I hear nothing," Elmira Deckard said.
And from Don Clute: "If a train goes by a mile away it makes more noise than I've ever heard from a wind tower."
Adds reporter Kristin Maiorano in an accompanying video, "And everyone I spoke with said the turbines make so little noise that you can usually only hear it if you're right under one."
