Turbine torture

The garden that was a sanctuary to me for 30 years is now more like a torture chamber. Some of the abutters have started using the term "turbine torture." When the turbine first went into operation in March 2010, and then through April, I tried to acclimate myself to live with this thing. After dropping into a three-month depression, I finally avoided my own home.

Our life with DeKalb wind turbines

DeKalb County, Illinois is near Chicago. In fact, many people who live in DeKalb work in the City. In 2009, NextERA, formerly known as FPL Energy and one of the largest wind developers in the United States, pushed through approval of its 151-turbine facility spanning the counties of Lee and DeKalb. The residents of DeKalb fought the development; an appeal of the approval order was filed and still pending in the Courts. Nonetheless, NextERA proceeded to construct and commission the project. The fears of the residents have become reality. Below is a sample of what a family in DeKalb County is now experiencing -- and they are not alone.
