The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center in 2005 was well aware of two distinct types of noise. One was regulatory noise and the other was called "human annoyance". Today we know the human annoyance noise is called many other names such as low frequency, infra sound etc. There is no getting around the fact that they were aware of the different types of noise.
Regulatory & Human Annoyance On page 14 of the Marion ,Mattapoisett and Rochester wind test study-Noise -- Massachusetts
Noise considerations generally take two forms, state regulatory compliance and nuisance levels at nearby residences:
A. "Regulatory compliance": Massachusetts state regulations do not allow a rise of 10 dB or greater above background levels at a property boundary (Massachusetts Air Pollution Control Regulations, Regulation 310 CMR 7.10).
Wind Turbine Infrasound - Low-Frequency noise aka nuisance noise or human annoyance.
Boone, North Carolina known since the early 1980s that noise from large wind turbines can adversely affect human health. In 1981, physicist Neil Kelley and colleagues reported their investigation of complaints from residents living within 1.5 miles of an experimental 2-megawatt wind turbine.
Call the types of noise anything you want but the residents' worldwide describe the noise as torture from lack of sleep
We can hope this ties up the wind industry for years in court.
It is about time the Wind Mafia , Maine had more uncertainty as to their future in Maine.
