Americans Don’t Mind Wind Turbines Near Their Homes, Say Government Researchers

There are tens of thousands large-scale wind turbines scattered across America. That means over a million and a half households are located five miles from a turbine. And they’re actually inching closer to homes on average, according to government researchers. So how do those machines impact our property values, our soundscapes, and our quality of life? The Lawrence Berkeley National Lab has a slew of new data on the impact of wind turbines on our lives.
