Wind turbine acoustic report (Australia)
Jan 6, 2012
Editor’s note: The following is from Dr. Sarah Laurie.
Could you please post this document? (Click here.) It is Steven Cooper’s acoustic report for the Flyers Creek submission, and includes data which confirms Rob Rand & Steve Ambrose’s findings of infrasound and low frequency noise inside homes. Steve Cooper’s measurements were taken from a couple of houses at the Capital wind development near Lake George (Australia).
The report includes a good critique of the South Australian wind farm noise guidelines, which are widely promoted as the best in the world. The critique is relevant for many other jurisdictions, as it shows some of the ways the wind industry acousticians have allowed the petpetuation of this situation.
