There is nothing that spoils a lovely view quite like a set of wind turbines, except maybe a nuclear power station. There are many advantages to wind turbines, yet that does not mean you want them close to your Ohio home.
It is not only the visual aspect that may upset you. There is the noise, which can break the rural silence you enjoy. You may worry that the blades will kill birds and bats. Some people have even reported health issues and sleep disturbance, but studies suggest other factors may cause these.
It can seem unreasonable that you suffer so other people can make money. The landowner is making money if they have a wind turbine on their land, and so are the shareholders of the wind energy company. Meanwhile, you and your community have to live with the constant eyesore of these big white giants.
You do not need to live close to a wind farm to be affected by it. They site them to catch the maximum wind, which means they can be seen from miles around, changing the landscape irrevocably. They are getting bigger too; newer ones can reach over twice the height of those at Bowling Green.
If you are worried about proposals to site industrial wind turbines close to your property, or in the Ohio area, you may want to consider taking legal action to stop them or have them relocated. Our legal team has represented other Ohio citizens who were in the same situation as you. They can use that experience to help your case.
