Icy reception for wind park - Proposed offshore windmill bank would be ugly and won't reduce bills much, say South Shore residents

Critics argued the combined 140 megawatts the turbines would produce at peak capacity represented a fraction of the Island's current 6,100 megawatt availability, at a price equivalent to or higher than oil or gas-based power. They voiced concerns over turbine noise, obstructed views and impacted property values, and noted that low wind velocities during the summer season could mean the wind farm is least productive when needed most.

Against the Wind

“People need to have an appreciation for the value of homes,” said Dodie Stark, an agent for Coldwell Banker Anchor Real Estate, in Oceana County. “For many, real estate is their biggest investment and a means to a secure retirement. Views are very important, especially in a resort area, and a group of 400-foot-tall wind turbines 500 feet from homes or cottages could have a devastating effect on property values.”
