Wind turbine vibration effect on animals.

Wind Energy Impacts and Issues. Wind turbine placement must consider vibration effect on animals. Although the study of the impact of industrial wind farms on migration is necessary and commendable, it is my concern that not nearly enough attention is being paid to the seismic vibrations generated by these wind farms. I can also hear … Continue reading Wind turbine vibration effect on animals.
