Are wind turbines noisy?
Wind turbine design has come a long way since the early 80s. It is now possible to hold a normal conversation at the base of the newer models.
At a distance of 300 meters, one is more likely to hear the rustling of leaves than the sound of the turbine, which is also drowned out by the traffic along nearby roads or highways.
Even a light breeze can muffle the sound of a turbine, which is so low as to not be discernible in most Quebec residential areas.
