Turbine Study Called For


Fond du Lac County’s Board of Health last week unanimously voted to recommend to the County Board asking the state to do a comprehensive study on the health impacts created by wind turbines. County Executive Al Buechel says a study done by Brown County was not complete enough. He had asked the state’s Joint Finance Committee to include a study in the state budget, but that didn’t happen. Buechel says it’s time someone moves forward and does something. Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says people who do live near wind farms have a variety of health complaints they say they are suffering from including sleeplessness, noise, headache, pressure, irritability, shadow flicker, exhaustion, ringing in the ears and more. Fond du Lac County has 168 wind turbines. The County Board will take the matter up at their meeting next month.

I really like the turbines. The leases paid to property owners brings an influx of outside money to the area that wouldn't be here otherwise. The negatives, personal as stated above, or environmental such as declining bat or bird populations, have a place in the debate and must be realized but I don't believe they outweigh the positive impacts to our area.
