Wind turbine noise: Suncor wind farm Ripley, Ontario

This video of the Suncor wind farm in Ripley Ontario was recorded using a personal video recorder. Given the difficulties of capturing noise using consumer video products, Windaction.org consulted with two individuals with experience with wind turbine noise: Rene Taylor of McLean County, IL and Richard James of E-Coustic Solutions (Okemos, MI). Ms. Taylor lives within 1500 of Horizon Wind's Twin Grove wind energy facility. Their comments are important to consider when listening to the video.
