Credit where credit is due. Author Jim Cummings as done a good job
exalpining why the industry is doing itself no service with a head in the
sand strategy on noise. Setbacks per se are not the problem. Sound and
infrasound levels are:Chris Bajdek, in a 2007 paper aimed at helping the
industry alleviate noise fears, suggests that 44% of those within about
1900 feet (575m, McGuinty take note!) of a typical wind farm would be
“highly annoyed,” and that only as sound drops below 40db (at around a
half mile), ((800m) will annoyance drop substantially. He cites a survey
from Wisconsin that found similar results, with about 50% of respondents
living with in a half mile saying noise is a problem; over a third of those
between a quarter and half mile had been awakened by turbines.While
community noise standards never aim to eliminate negative impacts, few
would suggest that disrupting a third to half of the nearby population is
an acceptable goal. It’s become clear, in both experience and the
literature, that modern turbines trigger adverse reactions at lower sound
levels than other community noise sources. A growing number of acoustics
professionals have been proactively seeking answers to why this may be,
some looking at characteristics of turbine noise for clues, and others at
psychoacoustics and rural “place identity.” These researchers appear to
be coalescing around recommended wind farm noise standards of 30-35dB,
which do in fact come closer to the familiar goal of keeping new noise
intrusions to within 5-10dB of existing ambient conditions (rural night
ambient is often around 25dB, even when winds aloft trigger turbines into
action).Unfortunately, this work has been relentlessly attacked by many in
the industry, despite the fact that these more cautionary acousticians
aren’t activist yahoos, but longtime industrial and military consultants
with decades in the field of noise control. It’s time to step back from
stubborn “lines in the sand” and really assess what they’re
finding.But we all know the science is settled!
