Alleged Issues with Windpower

Relationship Between Wind and Residential Property Values in MA

No Evidence of Residential Property Impacts Near Wind Turbines According to Third Berkeley Lab Study

 

Massachusetts-focused study finds other factors, such as proximity to highways, beaches have price impact

 

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) along with University of Connecticut analyzed more than 122,000 home sales near 26 wind facilities (with over 1,500 within a mile of operating turbines) in densely populated Massachusetts, yet was unable to uncover any impacts to nearby home property values.

Wind and Solar Integration Study for the West from NREL

Near the end of September 2013, the National Renewable Energy Lab published a Western Wind and Solar Integration Study which showed conclusively that wind and solar energy reduces net pollution emissions on a virtually 1 for 1 basis. Anti-clean energy forces have spread the lie for years that because wind and solar are intermittent sources, just as much fossil fuel energy is still needed, thus resulting in no lowering of harmful emissions.
