Society for Wind Vigilance recommends a 2-km setback for IWTs

Here is an important announcement from the Society for Wind Vigilance (www.windvigilance.com):

The Society for Wind Vigilance issues a Global Guideline for the Minimum Siting Distance of Industrial Wind Turbines

Based on a review of the evidence, the Society for Wind Vigilance is satisfied that there is a significant probability of adverse health effects for human subjects living within 2.0 km of land based industrial wind turbines.

The Society for Wind Vigilance recognizes the urgent need for further human health research to finalize guidelines for siting and noise levels that will protect human health.

In the interim the Society for Wind Vigilance recommends that land based industrial wind turbines be sited a minimum of 2 km from the property line of non participating residents.

Distances greater than 2 km will typically be required for special terrain such as turbines on ridges and offshore turbines.
