Sound proof fencing: the answer to wind turbine noise?

Sound proof fencing: the answer to wind turbine noise?
Wind turbines are becoming a nuisance for many people who live in the vicinity, which may lead them to consider the benefits of sound proof fencing

They become especially noisy in high winds, so as a result, some of them are switched off at certain times to protect locals.

However, this means the turbines generate less electricity, therefore sparking complaints among electricity suppliers, dossiers from local authorities reveal.

Dr Lee Moroney, planning director of the Renewable Energy Foundation, commented: "Separation distances between turbines and dwellings need to be significantly greater than many developers propose, and noise conditions improved to be robust, straightforward and deal with the thumping noise of turbines."

He also accused the wind industry of being in denial over the impact its turbines have on residents of surrounding areas, reported the Sunday Telegraph.

Prince Philip recently sparked debate when he dubbed wind farms as "absolutely useless".
