Prince “Turbine” County!

More Noise papers

Here are three interesting links to “late night reads” with reference to noise and windfarms. (the UK on land report cover all aspects) They are UK Government study / policy group papers. 

  • Onshore Wind Noise  UK BERR Interesting to see UK states 200 – 300 m for a 100-106db head to be 45-50db spot. No mention of 25db rural levels, Explanation of noise, low info describing type of type of noise from wind turbines.
  • UK Windfarm Noise Assessment Study 1996  UK BERR – a lengthy and in-depth study in 1996 that still appears to be a primary document on noise source.
  • UK On Land Report UK wind Energy Review Nov 2005 Government report covering all aspects of wind turbines, including noise. Interesting to once again see different figures for the 4db point. 20 – 40db mentioned for Rural. Interesting notes on Visual settings.
