A letter writer in Litchfield County believes wind turbines affect property values

May 5th, 2011 | By | Category: Energy, Wind

The purchase of a home is the largest investment a person makes. Regardless of what the wind industry would like us to believe, property values are impacted by nearby industrial wind turbines. Wind proponents insist that property values are not impacted by wind turbines; they argue there will always be a buyer; it is simply a matter of taste.

That is small comfort to those who have turbines inflicted upon their neighborhoods, but to whose taste rattling windows and humming walls, flickering lights, 130-foot blades spinning overhead and giant metal towers where once were trees and white-tailed deer, simply do not match.
