Not all happy with wind energy

Chevrons' wind farm officially opened Monday and the new turbines are creating quite a buzz... literally. Bright flashing lights, broken internet signals and increased noise are some of the complaints from local homeowners. Some feel their once peaceful property has been destroyed.

Chevrons' wind farm officially opened Monday and the new turbines are creating quite a buzz... literally.

Bright flashing lights, broken internet signals and increased noise are some of the complaints from local homeowners. Some feel their once peaceful property has been destroyed. Many can't understand why the wind farms had to be constructed near their homes.

"It wasn't fair to us we haven't gotten anything for the decrease in our property value, so we're stuck," says resident Tammy Clark.

When I spoke with Monte McKillip, a Chevron representative, he said the company is trying it's best to address residents' concerns. Chevron is working on replacing the current lights used to warn aircrafts of the turbine towers, with less intense and obtrusive bulbs.
