Four new independent studies are showing wind turbines have either no impact on, or a positive impact on neighboring property values.

As has been indicated in (real, scientifically reviewable, transparent) study after study in Europe; wind turbines in view, or even on the horizon do not negatively impact property values.
In fact, these studies show a correlation not between wind turbines, but between anti-wind groups’ activity and lowered property values. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Funny enough, when the battles are over, and the wind turbines are up and spinning, acceptance and property values go right back up where they are everywhere else, and in some cases rise.
This shows any correlation of lowered values directly related not to the wind turbines themselves, but lowered because of the activities of the very people against them.
