Hope that that wind turbines are connected to an independent 115 or 230KV transmission line. As wind driven induction generators. They occilate, hunt and surge which causes voltage spikes, voltage spikes and harmonics. What that means is that wind turbines need to be excited from and anchored to heavy power grid infrastructure. That has the protection and control trip points set very high. The flashing aviation lights will be annoying for a few years until you get used to them. I"m about 1-1/4 miles from the closest and it"s down wind. On occasion it can be heard but at distance it sounds like the ocean surf, but faster. The worst part is mornings and everning with the blades flickering in the sunlight. There is about 3 weeks a year the sun rises while lined up with a turbine when I "m having breakfast. Cloudy or still mornings are fine but otherwise the sunlight into the house pulses or flickers for 10-20 minutes . It would be worth the trip for you to drive on highway 21 between Kincardine and Tiverton approx 2 hours before sun set. The shadows from the blades make a "wind up and flash" strobing that every wind advocate should be chained in sight of for a week. It"s even worse driving on the 8th, 10th and 12th of Bruce township when surrounded by turbines. The flickering is most disconcerting. Base and peak load generation capacity still has to be online and spinning to carry electrical loads when the wind dies . Also require heavy generation capacity online just to absorb the power line harmonics transmitted from the wind turbines. As far as wind turbines paying? It it wasn"t for guarentied rate here of 16 cents per KW for wind and the carbon credits. There is no way wind or solar can compete against nuclear at 3-4cents or coal at 4-5 cents. Wind and solar power. The green feel good solution located out there away from their town and city homes. And doesn"t directly cost them anything out of pocket.
