Turbine build-out in Michigan's Thumb area

What2800turbineslooklike_thumb This image depicts what the Thumb region of Michigan might look like should 2800 wind turbines be erected as proposed by the Governor's Wind Zone Board. This would be the equivalent to building 88 wind farms sized equal to the John Deere Harvest wind facility (32 turbines). The turbines marked in red on the image are existing facilities both owned and operated by John Deere. The Harvest wind site is located in the north west. The Michigan Wind I facility consists of 46 towers in Ubly to the south east. Numerous complaints of excessive noise from the towers have already been filed.

Ubly home and towers

Ublytowersandhome_thumb John Deere Renewables' 32-tower wind plant located in the Village of Ubly, Huron County Michigan is the largest wind facility in the State. The 53-megawatt facility went into commercial operation in December 2008. The turbines dominate the landscape, and noise emissions are proving unbearable for some neighboring residents.

Turbine near home

Turbinecohoctonny_thumb A wind turbine is seen from Hal Graham’s window on Lent Hill in Cohocton. Mr. Graham signed a lease agreement with First Wind (formerly UPC Wind) to permit turbines on his property. Since signing, Mr. Graham has been vocal in arguing First Wind was not forthcoming with how noisy the turbines would be. According to aerial photographs of Mr. Graham's property, two industrial-scale turbines are located at 1050 feet and 2000 feet of the wall of his home. In total there are six industrial scale turbines within one-mile of his house.
