Learn about wind power May 20
Wind is one of the cleanest and greenest of alternative energies, but as we seek alternatives to fossil fuels, it is also important to study the impact of wind turbines. Community leaders and residents will find this presentation helpful in developing appropriate ordinances and location guidelines. Will ultra low frequency noise be a problem? What is “shadow flicker” and can it be abated? Are birds and bats affected? If large propellers aren’t feasible in a more urban or suburban setting, how about barber pole or roof mounted turbines?
