In the past ten years, since some of the oldest industrial wind farm projects have been operational, there has been an emerging track record of negative impacts to local peoples and wildlife in and surrounding those projects. Despite what the multi-billion dollar industrial wind industry says, the evidence is now becoming more public. Noise, shadow flicker and vibration are some of the problems associated with large spinning turbines.
Iberdrola (a.k.a Atlantic Wind LLC, and Avangrid Renewables LLC) is one of the companies with some of those projects in the United States.
