Wind farm causes health problems for family

Joan Lagerman of Wisconsin explains how wind turbines near her property have produced serious health impacts on her family. WE Energies, a utility in Wisconsin, operates the Blue Sky Green Field facility consisting of 88-turbines across 10,600 acres located between the townships of Calumet and Marshfield in Fond du Lac County and not far from the east shore of Lake Winnebago.

Wind Power: Cutting the Spin (video newscast)

Duration: 4 minutes 23 seconds Clean Wisconsin takes that position because there are no "peer-reviewed" studies that link inaudible noise levels to human illness. "Their argument is a fallacy," countered Sen. Lasee. "Their argument just justifies their actions. Their argument just keeps them getting paid. And I think they're wrong-headed on this." Sen. Lasee is now pushing for more regulations on wind energy that could limit its future growth even more. "What I'd like to do is at the very least, follow the lead of Australia and have a mile and a quarter setback from anybody's property line," said Sen. Lasee.

Home in a Wind Farm: Living with PSC approved setbacks in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin

The state of Wisconsin permits 400 foot tall turbines to be sited 1000 feet from the homes of non-participating residents. Towns and counties can adopt stricter standards provided it can be demonstrated the health and safety of the residents might be at risk. As of March, 2009 there is pending legislation which would strip towns, villages and counties of the ability to create more protective ordinances than those approved by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission (PSC). This video is one in a series intended to help Wisconsin legislators understand why the PSC's setbacks and noise limits are not sufficiently adequate to protect residents from noise, shadow-flicker and other problems associated with poorly sited industrial wind turbines.

Home in a Wind Farm: Living with PSC approved setbacks in Fond du Lac County, WI

At the time when this video was made, the state of Wisconsin allowed 400 foot tall turbines to be sited 1000 feet from non-participating residents homes unless a town or county adopted an ordinance which gave residents greater protection for reasons of health and safety. In 2009, legislation was passed by the State that stripped towns, villages and counties of the ability to create more protective ordinances than those approved by the Public Service Commission. This video was one in a series intended to help Wisconsin legislators understand why the PSC's setbacks and noise limits were not adequate enough to protect residents from noise, shadow-flicker and other problems associated with poorly sited industrial wind turbines.
