Michael Jeffery, president of blade inspection and repair firm Complete Wind Corporation, presented statistics showing that of more than.. 1,850 blades his company has inspected in North America since 2008, 84%had at least one defect.. Just over half the defects were related to manufacturing, 44% to wear and 3% to transportation and construction.. The ages of the blades ranged from newly delivered to post-warranty.. Wind Power Monthly.. Ontario s developers have been looking for clarity on when the province will be in the market for more wind power while simultaneously attempting to build projects.. The Ontario Power Authority awarded about 3.. 2GW of FIT contracts in three tranches between April 2010 and July 2011, giving developers three years to bring projects online.. But delays, largely around getting project approvals, have challenged the industry.. Although there have been some extensions, including the granting of an extra year for projects included in the first round of contract awards, CEO Colin Andersen said the authority is expecting developers to meet contract commitments.. It is going to take a large effort to see the projects through.. I encourage you to stay focused on your work.. Getting these projects built and operational within the framework of the contract is key for the future of wind in this province, he said.. Read article.. Posted in.. ,.. Wind Industry.. |.. 11 Comments.. Skyway 124 terminates Clearview wind turbine project.. Stayner Sun.. A company that planned to erect three wind turbines between Singhampton and Dunedin says the project is now off the table.. Derek Tennant, president of Skyway 124 Wind Energy Inc.. , said the project, which had been working its way through the provincial approval process, has been scrapped.. “It was by mutual agreement with the OPA [Ontario Power Authority] and that’s all I can say about it,” he said.. “We are disappointed by it but we agreed that it was the best thing.. ” OPA spokesperson Mary Bernard would also not discuss details about what lead to the termination of the project.. Skyway first announced its plans to pursue the project in May 2009.. Tennant said the decision to cancel the plans became final about two weeks ago.. Assuming the company had got all of the approvals from the province, it planned to erect the turbines on leased land.. Local resident Jan Minduik was pleased to learn the company has abandoned its plans.. “Our group worked hard to educate the public on the negative affects of industrial wind turbines, which include excessive costs to our already high hydro bills, property value decreases from 25 to 40 percent of their value, [and] negative health affects on humans, pets, livestock and the industrialization of the rural landscape,” she said.. Minduik said the news about Skyway is “incredible” but added that “until all [wind turbines] are removed from the rural Ontario landscape this is a small victory.. ”.. OWR.. 2 Comments.. Wind Turbines Remain a Turbulent Issue in Perth-Wellington.. Farms.. com.. In anticipation of the premier’s visit, about a dozen wind turbine protestors gathered outside the Army Navy and Air Force Veterans Banquet Hall to ‘greet’ her with anti-wind turbine signs.. The concerned citizens were largely from the North Perth area, which just so happens to be Skinner’s territory.. Spokesperson for the group, Listowel area dairy farmer Tim Martin said he hopes that their presence will remind the premier that many rural communities aren’t happy about the Liberal’s wind energy policies.. “We’re just hoping to get the premier’s attention,” he said.. There are about 73 municipalities and community groups who have declared themselves as not willing hosts of industrial wind turbines.. Once the premier arrived, she made a point to briefly address the protestors, where she acknowledged there are “strong feelings” about the subject.. “There are strong feelings on both sides,” she said.. “If we could roll back time and have a better process up front I would do that.. ” After addressing the group, Wynne met privately with Martin and another concerned citizen..

Judy Atkinson.. 03/20/2013 at 11:59.. How can any reasonable person view these pictures without horror? Only those benefiting financially, and living far away from the installations, could support this lunacy.. I mourn the loss of our rural landscape, the loss of productive farmland, and the destruction of our manufacturing industry through unaffordable energy as the result of the GEA.. Don t give up the resistance.. If we can delay these projects until we turf the Liberal government, it is our best hope.. And get your wallets out to mount class action suits it is cheaper by far than the property devaluation you will surely see..

They sneak the turbines in under some silly rule that allows them to do it without really investigation or input because each turbine is low in output..

  • Title: Setbacks | Ontario Wind Resistance
    Descriptive info: A setback is the minimum distance between an industrial wind turbine a “dwelling”.. In Ontario, the minimum setback for new projects is 550 m from non-participants.. There is no setback for participants.. Older turbines are even closer than 550 m.. Municipalities have no control over the setback in Ontario, unlike other jurisdictions.. The setback is arbitrary, not “based on the most up-to-date science”.. As of November 2011, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment is still claiming:..

BELGIUM.. 350 metres (1,148 feet) in theory (stated in draft legislation, but never voted).. In practice the developers avoid problems by making it no closer than 500 m (1,640 ft), although many turbines are as close as 150 m (492 ft).. CZECH REPUBLIC.. There are no regulations on setbacks from wind turbine.. In practice: 400 m to 800 m (1,312-2,625 ft).. DENMARK.. Windmills must be situated at a minimum distance of 4 × their height away from habitation.. If the windmill is erected closer than 6 × its height, an estimation is carried out free of charge regarding the depreciation of the property value.. If the loss is more than 1%, full compensation of the loss in property value is paid out.. If the property is situated farther away than 6 × the height of the windmill, 4,000 DKK is payable to have an evaluation of the loss in value carried out.. If it is estimated that the depreciation is more than 1%, the loss in value of the property is paid out and the 4,000 DKK reimbursed.. If it is estimated that there is no loss in value of the property, the 4,000 DKK is forfeited.. Owners of windmills have to pay the compensation.. ENGLAND, WALES.. No regulations.. I suppose the courts would enforce the laws on noise levels, but the experts invariably seem to show up on days with little wind, and of course never at night.. In a court case, the previous owners of a house were condemned to compensate the buyers because they had not disclosed the windfarm project affecting the house: “District Judge Buckley decided that this amounted to ‘material misrepresentation’ and ordered the Holdings to pay compensation of 20 per cent of the market value of the house in 1997, £12,500, plus interest, because of damage to visual amenity, noise pollution and the ‘irritating flickering’ caused by the sun going down behind the moving blades of the turbines 550 metres [1,804 ft] from the house.. ” John Etherington says: “There have been permissions as close as 350 m [1,148 ft] I think.. ”.. FRANCE.. On a case-by-case basis, only limited by noise legislation.. The French Academy of Medicine recommends 1,500 m (4,921 ft).. This is not respected, however.. In practice, 500 m (1,640 ft) seems to be the minimum observed.. GERMANY.. Different setbacks apply according to the noise level protection of the area :.. - “quiet regions” [35 dB(A)]: 1,000-1,500 m (3,281-4,921 ft).. - “middle regions” [(40 dB(A)]: 600-1,000 m (1,969-3,281 ft).. - “standard region” [(45 dB(A)]: 300-600 m (984-1,969 ft).. All makes and models of wind turbines are not equally noisy, hence the lack of a precise distance.. Some states have standards of their own.. ITALY.. Setbacks are determined by regional authorities.. Some regions have defined setbacks, others don’t.. Calabria and Molise: 5 × the height of the turbines (not specified if mast or total height).. Basilicata: 2 km from urbanized areas.. Campania: 10 × the turbine height from urbanized areas.. Molise: 20 × the turbine height from urbanized areas.. NETHERLANDS.. In practice, they use 4 × the height of the mast of the wind turbine.. This is not a legal setback.. The legal setback is linked to a maximum noise level [40 dB(A)].. New limits are proposed and in discussion at this time and a possible change of setbacks is expected to become law in the middle of this year (2009).. NORTHERN IRELAND.. The “Best Practice Guidance to Planning Policy Statement 18 ‘Renewable Energy’” (August 2009) states: “As a matter of best practice for wind farm development, the Department [of the Environment] will generally apply a separation distance of 10 times rotor diameter to occupied property (with a minimum distance of not less than 500m).. ROMANIA.. The setback is 3 × the height of the mast, and this distance may be shortened with the approval of local communities but not shorter than height of the tower + length of blades + 3 meters.. So far, this appears to be the European record on the nuisance scale.. SCOTLAND.. On a case-by-case basis within 2 km of the edge of cities, towns, and villages (SSP6 legislation).. Some people skim this and interpret it as a 2 km setback.. It is nothing of the sort.. The policy was adopted after the vast majority of wind proposals were submitted so does not apply to them.. Another caveat: note that “cities, towns, and villages” in practice suggests probably a minimum of 3,000 or more homes.. Isolated country houses, in any event, are excluded from this.. Some examples:.. - Bankend Rigg (awaiting approval): just over 1,000 m (3,281 ft).. - Chapelton (awaiting approval): 750 m (2,461 ft).. - Dungavel (awaiting approval): 1,000 m (3,281 ft).. - Whitelee (built): about 1,000 m (3,281 ft).. - Gathercauld Ceres (awaiting approval): 572 m (1,877 ft).. - Auchtermuchty (approved): 650 m (2,133 ft).. Addendum, April 18, 2009:.. The Stop Highland Windfarms Campaign wrote to Jim Mather, Minister for Enterprise, Energy and Tourism, for clarification.. In reply, the Directorate for the Built Environment wrote: “The 2km separation distance is intended to recognise that, in relation to local communities, visual impacts are likely to be a prominent feature and this should be taken into account when identifying the most suitable search areas.. However, impacts will clearly vary considerably depending on the scale of projects and the proposed location.. That is why SPP6 confirms that, in all instances, proposals should not be permitted if they would have a significant long term detrimental impact on the amenity of people living nearby.. This principle applies to houses within and outwith 2km of the proposed development and regardless of whether they are single dwellings or part of a settlement.. Click here for a copy of the correspondence in full, by courtesy of the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum.. SPAIN.. National: noise legislation applies.. Regional: windpower policies sometimes specify a setback.. Examples:.. - Valencia: 1,000 m (3,281 ft) from any piece of land that may be built upon.. - Andalucia: 500 m (1,640 ft).. SWEDEN.. The only limit is the noise level [40 dB(A)].. In practice, 500 m (1,640 ft) seems to be the setback applied, but there are exceptions (350 m [1,148 ft] in one case).. I am told there are regulations for shadows.. SWITZERLAND.. Documentation from Suisse Eole (quango promoting windfarms) mentions 300 m (984 ft) from the tip of turbine blades of a 70 m (230 ft) turbine.. But each canton is still working on a clear setback policy.. 59 Responses to.. David Libby.. 02/12/2012 at 21:16.. Section 47.. 3 (1)..

The most important issue was to be able to fit as many turbines in as possible considering the 100 acre farm lot sizes and more densely populated areas they would encounter in many key locations.. 02/13/2012 at 11:31.. The objective is to have IWTs supply a predetermined amount of electricity and this can be achieved using different size IWTs.. One solution is to install very large turbines in place of smaller turbines so setback distances need to be closely watched.. Another factor is the way the land was laid out in rural Ontario.. Most of the land was laid out in rectangles 6600ft or 1.. 25 miles across with 66 ft concession roadways.. Then there are line roads that bisect/divide the large land rectangles.. 2kms /1.. 25 miles might be enough space between concessions to install turbines every other concession.. Have used feet miles because this was the original way the land was laid out.. These measurements are still valid today when dealing with property.. Most farms in the States,under the Homestead Act, were laid out in 1 sq.. mile plots/sections with 4 farms of 160 acres each.. This presents different siting issues than Ontario has.. 02/13/2012 at 13:09.. To illustrate, my home/property was completely surrounded.. by a couple of thousand leased up acres..

Just to be clear about something and it goes right back to the first sentence of this post “A setback is the minimum distance between an industrial wind turbine a “dwelling”.. So let’s take an obvious case where this definition is in my view a real problem.. Say that I purchased a large property that has a very ratty old house on one corner of it what in real estate terms is called a ‘pushover’.. However, the property has some wonderful other locations which are quite attractive to build on including a nice spot on a far corner that is approximately 800 meters away from the pushover house.. What I originally intended to do was put up with the pushover until my new spiffy house is built.. In the meantime, some IWTs were approved that would be well over the 550 meters from the pushover house but well within 550 meters from where I want to locate the new house.. This would seem to elicit a whole bunch of questions: 1.. Are IWT permits prevented from building where a dwelling could potentially be located? Or only from where they actually are located right now? 2.. What does a homeowner have to do to assert a right to be able to build anywhere he/she wants to on the property.. within the confines let’s say of what would have been ‘existing building code requirements’? Existing zoning laws operate on a principal of ‘separation distances’ between the distinctive zoning allocations of residential, commercial and industrial.. but it would appear that IWTs have some superseding rights here that dictate what existing property owners can do to their properties in the future.. At least, it would seem that if one tried to take out a building permit to build a house in a location that is now within under 550 meters from an IWT, the building department would have to refuse to give it to the property owner.. Is this really the case? If so, it would seem that there is essentially no protection for the homeowner to do what they want with their property.. 04/14/2012 at 12:19.. Marty, There is no property line setback distance in Ontario.. The setback only applies to currently inhabited dwellings.. And the Ontario government does not always follow those laws.. There are currently turbines under construction 400m from homes and in some cases much less.. Pre GEA approvals.. You really don t want to be close to these things, at least 5km and likely a lot further.. 04/10/2012 at 22:25..  ...   out of sight of the public.. What was available to public, but certainly kept quiet as well was a map similiar to this link.. I have added a graph with real noise measurements 40-65 decibel.. There may be a model invloved but all they have done is mark cirlces around the turbines.. Two exact same turbines will have different sized circles (if the whole map was shown).. Based on what? fit them between the houses.. And then if there was no way to make to make a turbine fit they just threw something on the map and then ignored it for actual construction.. This one has been moved 300-400m N or NW.. Four houses 200-400m away.. 03/25/2012 at 19:39.. David,.. I went into your photobucket and copied the html code instead of the email link..

On Campobello Island NB, a quiet, peaceful favorite place for tourists to find tranquility, security and beautiful scenery including the wonderful bay of Fundy, A US land owner has initiated the backing of a US industrial wind turbine company who secured the backing of our local rural community council without their coming to the small community of Welshpool, New Brunswick, including the residents, property owners and tax payers who are in the setback which is on average.. 54 miles from the turbine location for our opinions.. A tourism related motel is situated almost beside it! Tourism is our largest growing industry with the exception of fishing.. The council rammed the project through without our consent or knowledge.. When we approached the Mayor and our district councilor they simply ignored our voices of protest, information we had compiled (bone fide and credible) and kept on proceeding.. We are outraged because we live here with some inconvenience on a tiny nine mile island connected to Maine (Canadian Island) must travel through Maine for about one hour to get back to our own country, St.. Stephen, NB.. Point being we love it here because of the peace and quiet.. My husband is a thirty year veteran of the Canadian Armed forces (Air Force) with a stellar career with commendations and who retired as a Chief Warrant Officer.. He was born here.. He sustained a severe ear injury due to his trade which included explosives, bombs etc and which he taught demolition etc to the military troops and the RCMP.. Now in his later years, he struggles with Meniere type symptoms, and cannot bear to be around noise.. We have put our equity in our beloved home, making many improvements as recently as last summer.. Now we are going to be existing in the too narrow setback and our whole lives will be ruined.. Because of the devaluation of property we cannot even sell at a fair market price, and at this stage in our lives, it is outrageous to have to be forced to move, lose money because of the lack of diligence and care of our elected representatives who are in place to look after our interests.. There also appears to be a personal conflict on interest in this, as well as our local district representative voting for approval of the project and then proclaiming that she did not know anything about industrial wind turbines! We have used the tools and submitted amendments to the zoning laws which have never even been recognized.. And, we have a petition on the island being circulated which is gathering steam however on this island, there are many folks who if they do not have a dog in the fight, they do not care unless they are affected personally.. I recently resigned as president of the tourism association for which I worked many years, mainly because of one member who is actually pushing the turbine on her web site oblivious to the damage to her fellow tourism providers on this end of the island! We are doing all that we can to stop this project before it starts but our voices are falling on the deaf ears of our council.. They have apparently ignored the guidelines which were put in place when the island became a rural community and in a dictatorial fashion have arbitrarily decided to ruin our lives.. There are many houses impacted, tourism outlets such as a prestigious art gallery, motel, restaurant, hair salon, golf course, proposed marina, Country Inn, Church, Church Hall, Library etc.. Five known residents impacted have inner ear problems! The narrow set back is the issue but the island is also in the Atlantic Fly path which is used by thousands of birds annually and who use the mud flats below our property as a resting ground before continuing their journey.. Around the globe people are complaining (with justification) about the implications of the low level frequency and consequent health hazards, flicker, and so much more of which you are aware.. We note an island with comparable problems -.. Voices of Vinalhaven Island, Maine: wind turbine noise – island off bar harbor , Maine.. youtube.. com/watch?v=Bw4S98SYHiE.. We have contacted sufferers there who have had to move to the mainland.. They are coming to speak next week.. The problem is that we will be preaching to the choir as most people are not aware of the implications and blind to learning about them.. The informed ones will attend the presentation of people who are going through this ordeal.. The electrical bills in Vinalhaven actually went up after the turbines were erected and life has become unbearable for the folks in the setbacks.. The UK has recently enacted a law of 3 km setback.. 03/26/2012 at 15:10.. Dean Fitzsimmons family,.. Thanks for writing your story.. Do not be disappointed if people don t say much about the story you wrote.. People feel uncomfortable talking directly to you about it.. But keep getting your story out there.. Even if you are only able to educate one person at a time.. If we all do that eventually.. This is my backyard.. It is becoming very common everywhere.. 03/25/2012 at 15:27.. This is all about money and the few people who have vested interests in IWTs.. Damage done to other people wildlife is only viewed by these people as necessary collateral damge.. Veterans with ear/hearing damage from expolsives can just be damned.. 03/25/2012 at 21:01.. Barbara, I have a few more for Chatham Kent but they are the same as the picture with MOE testing location except larger.. The very top one with all of the overlapping noise areas, that is the only one I have.. Anyone can contact me through OWR and I will send the pdf files.. 03/25/2012 at 21:42.. Better left to the people who can handle these kinds of computer tasks and the sooner the better.. After looking at the top IWT sound map who in their right mind would buy any property in that area and with more turbines going in?.. Terrible for the victims who live there.. 03/26/2012 at 15:19.. A couple of brief follow up points.. What you are looking at Dan W in the 40 -51 db(A) stuff is NPC-232.. It is the noise limits that the MOE allows at different wind speeds.. Your interpretation is not completely accurate in that for a Class 3 area(rural) the ceiling is the 40 db(A) limit at a wind speed of 6m/s.. The proponent has to prove through the sound attenuation model (ISO 9613-2) that turbine noise will not exceed 40 dbA) at any non-participating receptor for approval.. If it is over that limit then it is non-compliant and will not be approved.. Here s the interesting point; when the proponent models the noise levels of turbines they are required to model a worst case scenario which means they model the noise level that would be created if the turbine operated at 95% of the power output capacity.. For most turbines they do not reach maximum power output until wind blows from 13-15 m/s.. Therefore, the noise level of the turbine at 95% of its power capacity is between 11-12 m/s.. So in effect the proponent models noise output at the top wind speeds of NPC-232 and proves that noise won t exceed 40 db(A) at a receptor.. They accomplish this in two ways; first it is through distance.. That s why in every approved wind farm to date you won t find a turbine as close as the infamous 550 m setback.. Secondly, they do it through turbine groupings; clusters of turbines are noisier than more isolated turbines.. Which leads to a second point on Dave L s maps.. The iso-contour map you see in the link is a pictorial representation of the mathematical modelling.. They are VERY public and easily accessible.. If you go on to google and type the name of any wind project now approved (like Kent-Breeze, Conestoga, Gesner,) or an REA submitted awaiting approval (like McLeans Mountain) and then add to the name a phrase like Detail Noise Assessment you will find a 15-20 page document that includes an iso-contour map like the one above.. The circles join areas of the same predicted noise levels and they are different shapes around identical turbines for a couple of reasons; One, turbine noise is modelled on a cummulative basis That means that the noise predicted at a receptor is not just the noise from the closest turbine but rather from the closest turbine PLUS every other turbine within a 5 km radius.. Hence you will see a number of different noise envelopes like in the map above.. When there are two or three clustered together the circles will be larger then for isolated turbines.. Also, the circles can have odd shapes in view of the fact that noise carries a further distance downwind from a turbine then upwind.. If you look at the Gesner project or the proposed McLeans Mountain on Manitoulin you will see iso-contour lines that show noise levels as much as 75-80 db(A) at about 100-200 m from a turbine.. For those that choose to host turbines on their property they will regularly be exposed to limits from 40 db(A) and up, depending on how close they either work(as a farmer) or live to a turbine.. The sad part is no one seems to be concerned.. In any Detailed Noise Impact Assessment noise levels at participating-receptors are not included for approval.. In the recently approved Summerhaven project in Haldimand there are 19 participating-receptors and 3 of them have turbines less than 350m from a dwelling.. 03/31/2012 at 16:30.. The multi-coloured areas/circles on David s map remind one of the top view of mushroom clouds from you know what.. 03/30/2012 at 09:26.. I fear I am not intelligent enough to understand a lot of what you are saying but definitely am trying.. What I would like to know is do they take into account topography? I have turbines east of me and then the Grand River Valley then my house elevated above the valley.. I have notice with other noises such as farm machinery and trucks on the highway one block away that wind direction makes a huge difference as to noise travel.. It feels like East and West winds cause the noise to bounce (for lack of a more technical term) off my house.. Most other properties in this area are fairly flat so it is hard to tell.. I think I am one of the most affected this way.. An feedback is appreciated.. 03/30/2012 at 14:36.. Indeed, sound does bounce off from objects.. Have you ever been seated under a balcony and can t hear anything thing that s going on on stage? Objects can also absorb sound which then deadens the sound.. In the case of light you would use the term light reflected back from objects.. 03/31/2012 at 16:24.. Kind of think of sound the same way you see light reflected, absorbed,how far it travels and how light beams can converge etc.. This will give you a general idea about how sound behaves.. 03/31/2012 at 14:45.. I am not an engineer nor in any way a scientist but seem to have too much time on my hands to read about this stuff(according to my family).. I would suggest that my skills in trying to re-write what I understand is what leads to confusion.. Certainly any confusion that you suffer from reading my notes is in no way related to your intelligence.. In that regard I will do my best to address some of the puzzling aspects as directly as I can.. If you are interested one of the clearest documents I have ever read on this issue can be found on the internet if you google Propogation Modelling Parameters for Wind Power Projects by K.. Kaliski E.. Duncan of Vermont.. The short answer to the question about topography is that yes it is taken into account when wind projects are modelled.. You need to appreciate however what is actually being determined is the amount of attenutation of noise due to ground conditions.. That means they are modelling how much noise decreases from a source(turbine).. In the modelling process ground attenuation due to topography is considered in three regions: source region, middle region and receiver region.. However, how they define the size of a region is important.. As an example, a source region is defined as a region 30 times the height of the source.. Therefore for turbines of 80-100m heights the source region is sometimes 2-3 km.. A reciever region is also 30 times the height but the height is much less and therefore smaller.. The middle region is only considered if the source region and the receiver region do not overlap which is rare with wind projects.. In the case of modelling a wind project in Ontario each region is assigned a value between 0 and 1.. Zero(0) relates to hard ground with high reflectivity and one(1) relates to ground with vegetation and therefore more absorbtion.. In the case of Ontario s wind projects, the source region cannot exceed a value of 1 and the receiver region cannot exceed a value of.. 5.. Proponents can use a global universal value of.. 7.. The interesting point here is that this method (called spectural ground attenuation ) is best suited for flat ground or ground that slopes constantly.. It is less accurate for ground in valleys between sharp rises(ie.. where there is sharp differences in topographic features).. Also, I have not seen any place where there is an assessment of echo with wind projects.. I do know that in our area there is a proposal for a project of 26 turbines within about 1.. 3 km of the NIagara Escaprment (300 limestone wall) and the proponent has expressed some concern about the potential for echo but does not have any way to assess it.. I hope this is helpful.. 03/31/2012 at 16:18.. Topography is so varied how can you measure it with models ? And the vegetation topography changes from season to season, location to location here and year to year.. New buildings/structures go up and others are torn down.. Rural Ontarians are getting a method/ computer model hose job done on them.. 01/22/2013 at 11:29.. Those models were developed for audible sound.. Low frequency noise can bend around obstructions.. Another point is that they (Wind Companies, engineering companies) have offered no proof that they actually use the attenuation parameters for hills and other obstructions.. Yes they are in the model but are they used? They offer only summary data not the methodology.. Also a very small error at each point (say 1 or 2dB) actually measured can produce an error of between 15% and 125% of the noise being measured in large arrays say 10 to 20 wind turbines.. My understanding is that they estimate a few points then fill in the model by guesswork and calculation.. Do recall that these studies are published in advance of construction so there are no measurements just guesswork.. Further they do not take into account modulation and interference between wind turbines which can add the noise together at nodal points.. and they use dBA (audible noise) not dBC the low frequency evaluation measurement technique.. and yes I do have the engineering math to do an evaluation but there is not much to evaluate as most of the data is made up, estimated, faked whatever you want to call it it s guesswork.. jess sayin.. 03/30/2012 at 09:32.. I don t believe they bother taking topography into account.. I don t recall seeing it in any regs.. I can see how it could have a definite impact though!.. 04/10/2012 at 08:16.. The ISO Standard for calculating the noise level does have a means for handling height (altitude) and obstacles.. However, I have never seen a situation where the informatio was used.. Exurban.. 01/22/2013 at 11:02.. So to summarise, the Ontario Government is lying.. 01/22/2013 at 11:34.. To lie one has to know and understand the truth.. Do you give them that much credit?..

March 11, 2012 by Christopher D Hanning and Alun Evans in British Medical Journal.. A large body of evidence now exists to suggest that wind turbines disturb sleep and impair health at distances and external noise levels that are permitted in most jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom.. Sleep disturbance may be a particular problem in children,[1] and it may have important implications for public health.. The evidence for adequate sleep as a prerequisite for human health, particularly child health, is overwhelming.. Governments have recently paid much attention to the effects of environmental noise on sleep duration and quality, and to how to reduce such noise.. 1 However, governments have also imposed noise from industrial wind turbines on large swathes of peaceful countryside.. The impact of road, rail, and aircraft noise on sleep and daytime functioning (sleepiness and cognitive function) is well established.. 1 Shortly after wind turbines began to be erected close to housing, complaints emerged of adverse effects on health.. Sleep disturbance was the main complaint.. 2 Such reports have been dismissed as being subjective and anecdotal, but experts contend that the quantity, consistency, and ubiquity of the complaints constitute epidemiological evidence of a strong link between wind turbine noise, ill health, and disruption of sleep.. 3..

Further research could confirm that these ill effects are caused by pressure pulsations exceeding vestibular thresholds, unrelated to the audible frequency spectrum but are instead related to the response of the vestibular system to the low frequency noise emissions.. The vestibular system appears to be stimulated by responding to these pressure pulsations rather than by motion or disease, especially at low ambient sound levels.. Dysfunctions in the vestibular system can cause disequilibrium, nausea, vertigo, anxiety, and panic attacks, which have been reported near a number of industrial wind turbine facilities..

It looks like the feds will be examining everything from air pressure modulation to structural reverberation.. 10/07/2013 at 09:38.. The adoption of a short phrase describing the health impact of IWT generated infrasound could go a long way in educating the public.. I suggest the phrase TOXIC PRESSURE MODULATION which can be expanded to Toxic air pressure in modulation or condensed to TPM.. The phrase TOXIC PRESSURE MODULATION effectively ties together the IWT s down-blade turbulence effects with their infrasound-based impacts on health.. News media focus on short acronym-type labels for covering issues.. I believe the adoption of such a precise and clear phrase as TOXIC PRESSURE MODULATION (TPM) will help attract the media s attention and further promote our cause.. 10/07/2013 at 12:31..
