I WILL NOT SIGN ! GET OUT OF MY PROPERTY AND NEVER COME BACK! I WILL NOT DO THIS TO MY FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS !

 

REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE WIND INDUSTRY ASSERTS, THE SERIOUS CONCERN FOR PROPERTY VALUES COME FROM PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO HEAR OR FEEL THE TURBINES ENOUGH SO THEY CANNOT ESCAPE THE NOISE AND VIBRATION EVEN WHEN THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO ENJOY THEIR PROPERTY, AND ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE TRYING TO GO TO SLEEP. FOR A HOME AFFECTED BY THIS SORT OF PROBLEMS THE REDUCTION IN VALUE MIGHT BE VERY LARGE INDEED, CERTAINLY INTO DOUBLE DIGITS AND IN THE WORST CASES APPROACHING 100% . THIS IS WHAT HOME OWNERS REALLY FEAR.

IN THE 2007 BURCH V. NEDPOWER MOUNT STORM, LLC DECISION, A WEST VIRGINIA COURT FOUND THAT WIND FARMS CAN CONSTITUTE A NUISANCE TO NEARBY LANDOWNERS. EVEN THOUGH THE STATES PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISION APPROVED THE FACILITY, THE COURT RULED THAT SUCH APPROVAL DOES NOT OVERRULE THE COMMON LAW OF NUISANCE. ACCEPTED CAUSES OF NUISANCE INCLUDE NOISE, EYESORE, FLICKER AND STOBE EFFECTS OF LIGHT REFLECTING FROM BLADES, POTENTIAL DANGER FROM BROKEN BLADES, ICE THROWS, AND REDUCED PROPERTY VALUES.
