They say the noise they make effects their health.......they tend to put them close to houses here for some reason....... I am not sure they make that much noise, but its a constant one and a big issue , and they are seen as a disaster.
I think if they put them in the right place they are a good option to add to what we already have.

They are seen by some people as a disaster, others welcome them.
There is no definitive science behind the health impact claims - but research continues and one day we will have a proven outcome.

As the Australian population is concentrated along coastal areas, prime wind farm positions are unfortunately often close to residential development.

We have a "green energy act" in Ontario brought in by the existing provincial government.  This includes adoption of both solar and wind farms - the locals refer to the turbines as "bird blenders".  I used to dive in Kingston, and they installed a crap load of turbines there...they certainly changed the landscape.  Sadly, they produce very little percentage wise into our power grid, and at the expense of throttling back traditional hydro-electric power, and costing consumers rates that are four times higher than our neighbours in Quebec.  That's the end of my political rant...

I'm going to try to get some footage of them this summer when I hit the Kingston area... Hopefully my Inspire doesn't get "whacked" by a blade... ;-)

Cheers,
