Life with shadow flicker, DeKalb County IL

The American Wind Energy Association claims shadow flicker is a myth. The family that made this video tells a very different story: "The shadow flicker at our home comes through the trees...it comes through the window treatments in our children's rooms. This could all be avoided if FPL, LLC (aka: NextEra Energy Resources, LLC) increased the setbacks to at least a mile away from homes." --http://lifewithdekalbturbines.blogspot.com/ Duration: 1 minute 36 seconds

Wind farm developers stealing your land

The Jo Daviess County Board permitted a wind farm developer to place turbines such that safety setbacks overlapped an adjacent homeowner's residence. The safety setbacks were established to provide protection in the event of blade and ice throws, tower collapse, noise etc. The homeowner who made the video states, "I can no longer safely occupy my own property within the setbacks!" The only recourse for homeowners is to seek legal action.
