Farmall Doctor Posted March 8 Share Posted March 8 Just North of here, in Dresden Ontario, a large number of rural residents had their water wells destroyed by the construction of industrial turbines. The pilings driven into the ground shook the materials around the aquifer and filled them with black sediment. Of course the wind company hired a big team of lawyers and the local residents can't afford to fight them for compensation. They offered to supply bottled water... but the next question was, how many bottles of water do they think a herd of cattle will drink in a day? A farmer near Thamesville has lost multiple head of cattle due to stray voltage. Wind companies claim that it's not their fault. Low frequency noise is real. It gets right into your ears and I get a headache... it feels like someone is running a big vibratory road roller somewhere. I feel it in the shop, but step outside and can't pinpoint it. Wind direction and barometric pressure changes the whooshing or howling sounds. Light flicker is also a big problem. Some people have walked away from their homes just to save their sanity. When the blades shadow the sun as they spin, it's like someone is constantly turning the lights on and off inside the home! I am lucky that the 2 across the road aren't upwind of me, or else I would be hearing them constantly! I hear them when the wind blows from certain directions. There was a fellow living in the house closer to them, and he resorted to living in the basement before finally selling the property. ....and they are ugly! haha 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
