WIND TURBINE CYCLICAL NOISE CAUSES SERIOUS HARM TO HEALTH / WARRANTS ONTARIO PENALTY

Germany’s highest court has ruled against the owner of an Enercon wind turbine. Enercon is the largest producer of wind turbines in Germany and major supplier to many wind projects in Ontario.
Owner of an Enercon wind turbine was successfully sued by a citizen’s group for making false claims that their turbines do not emit cyclical sound – the culprit swoosh/ thump that causes sleep disturbance.
The United Nation’s World Health Organization’s (WHO) which Canada is a party to, classifies sleep disturbance as a serious harm to health.
The facts speak for themselves:
HIGHEST COURTS SAY TURBINES EMIT CYCLICAL SOUND AND PENALTIES MUST BE ENFORCED
CYCLICAL SOUND ( SWOOSH/THUMP) CAUSES SLEEP DISTURBANCE
SLEEP DISTURBANCE IS A WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION RECOGNISED FACTOR FOR SERIOUS HARM TO HEALTH
Ontario has to be forced to apply its own penalties for cyclical sound (5dB) and impulsive sound (10dB) to wind turbines.
Setback distances to homes double and sleep disturbance, vertigo, tinnitus all identified as harms to health in the MOE study, are minimized.

CALL FOR ENFORCEMENT OF CYCLICAL AND IMPULSIVE SOUND PENALTIES ON WIND TURBINES.
