Simulation of turbine flicker at the Gartree wind facility

The shadow flicker impact on buildings within the vicinity of a wind farm can be significant. This video demonstrates how homes and the prison at Gartree in the United Kingdom will be impacted for most of the day by flickering light. While sensors can be used to turn off the turbines when shadows cross over buildings, this would mean that these turbines would not be turning for a significant amount of time per year from the beginning of November to the end of January.
