The influence of wind turbine visibility on the health of local residents: a systematic review

Author:  Freiberg, Alice; et al. | Aesthetics, Health, Noise

[Abstract] PURPOSE: The health effects of visible wind turbine features on residents were investigated. Further, it was examined, if visual annoyance has an influence on residents’ health, and if wind turbine visibility impacts residents’ health independently of or in combination with acoustical aspects. METHODS: Medical databases, Google Scholar, public health institutions, and reference lists were searched systematically (PROSPERO registry number: CRD42016041737). Two independent reviewers screened titles/abstract and full texts, extracted data, and critically appraised the methodology of included studies. Study . . .

Local Tax Abatements and the Texas Wind Industry: How Chapters 312 and 313 Are Scarring Rural Texas

Author:  Greer, Stanley | Economics, Environment, Health, Texas

KEY POINTS: Local tax abatements for Texas wind energy cost Texan taxpayers money and have not been proven to generate a net overall increase in job-creating investment. The wind mainly blows in remote areas of the state and it costs additional money to transport the energy created to more populated areas. Wind energy is also unreliable because the wind mainly blows when the energy generated is less needed. For example, Texans rely on fossil fuel generators during heat waves, not . . .

Local Cost for Global Benefit: The Case of Wind Turbines

Author:  Frondel, Manuel; et al. | Germany, Property values

[Abstract] Given the rapid expansion of wind power capacities in Germany, this paper estimates the effects of wind turbines on house prices using real estate price data from Germany’s leading online broker. Employing a hedonic price model whose specification is informed by machine learning techniques, our methodological approach provides insights into the sources of heterogeneity in treatment effects. We estimate an average treatment effect (ATE) of up to −7.1% for houses within a one-kilometer radius of a wind turbine, an . . .

On infrasound generated by wind farms and its propagation in low-altitude tropospheric waveguides

Author:  Marcillo, Omar; et al. | New Mexico, Noise

[Abstract] Infrasound from a 60‐turbine wind farm was found to propagate to distances up to 90 km under nighttime atmospheric conditions. Four infrasound sensor arrays were deployed in central New Mexico in February 2014; three of these arrays captured infrasound from a large wind farm. The arrays were in a linear configuration oriented southeast with 13, 54, 90, and 126 km radial distances and azimuths of 166°, 119°, 113°, and 111° from the 60 1.6 MW turbine Red Mesa Wind Farm, Laguna Pueblo, . . .
