Do wind turbines produce low frequency noise?

0

A. There is always low frequency noise present in any ambient quiet background and it can be produced by a variety of sources, including industrial machinery, cars, fridges, TVs and natural sources such as the sea, wind and thunder. It has been repeatedly shown by measurements of wind turbine noise undertaken in the UK, Denmark, Germany and the USA over the past decade, and accepted by experienced noise professionals, that the levels of low frequency noise and vibration radiated from modern, upwind configuration wind turbines are at a very low level; so low that they lie below the threshold of perception. There are no direct health effects from noise at the level of noise generated by wind turbines.
