BADGERS HELPING BADGERS GET IT RIGHT:
There is finally some good news for Wisconsin wind farm residents having trouble with turbine noise and shadow-flicker.
A new organization called Healthy Wind, Wisconsin (HWW) will advocate on behalf of those who feel their complaints are not being taken seriously by the wind company.
From the HWW website:
"Healthy Wind, Wisconsin (HWW) is an all-volunteer independent Wisconsin-based community group working to ensure that the placement of large wind turbines is protective of family's health and safety. We have multiple years of experience in researching information in regard to wind turbine siting. Our members have participated in drafting large wind turbine ordinances that have been adopted by Town Boards. We have testified at local and state public hearings concerning this issue, and have offered our assistance to other citizen groups outside of Wisconsin.
We are committed to:
Assisting residents living in wind facilities with complaint resolution.
Compiling a data base of all complaints to channel toward the appropriate local, county and state agencies.
Advocate for responsible siting to minimize the adverse impacts of noise, shadow flicker, and sleep disturbance.
Put people into the renewable energy equation by providing education and awareness on the issues.
Healthy Wind, Wisconsin’s mission is to keep active track of wind-related health issues affecting Wisconsin families. We are committed to assisting residents' of Wisconsin who have been impacted by poorly sited wind turbines by processing resident’s complaints and monitoring the progress toward complaint resolution."
