Forbes magazine ran an article relating how wind turbine sites can reduce a home's value by 20% or more. Wow! I find that hard to believe when every wind corporation says that they do not. Why would the findings in the independent research want to lie?
My question is do we really need a study to tell us, Americans, that when someone erects a three hundred foot tower with 200 foot blades that spin next to a home, the value of that home goes down?
I am the biggest proponent of environmentally friendly power generation. However, wind turbines are not environmentally friendly if you like birds, bats, and endangered species...not to mention endangering your neighbors.
