More shadow flicker from turbines

The wind industry insists shadow flicker does not extend beyond a distance of 10-times the turbine rotor-diameter and the impact is of no consequence when limited to a maximum of 30-hours per year. Both claims are erroneous and self-serving. Shadow flicker has been reported at over 1-mile away. In the video, the turbine is sited 667 meters from the home.

Turbine shadow flicker in 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: 44 seconds

Industrial wind turbine shadow flicker in Wisconsin 2008

There are indeed problems with noise and shadow flicker at this distance. Ask people in the town of Byron in Fond du Lac what they think of the 1000 foot setback. Duration: 2 minutes 37 seconds
