Released earlier this year, the “Wind Turbine Health Impact Study: Report of the Independent Expert Panel” concluded that from a distance of 1,200 feet, sound pressure levels generated by turbines are below the “annoyance” level. It also concluded that “infrasound [sub-audible] vibrations” from wind turbines are not felt by people and there is no evidence to connect turbine noise to a range of complaints including pain, high blood pressure, hearing impairment, and headaches.
