What does a wind farm sound like?

As wind turbine blades pass through the air, they make a sound that is often described as a “whoosh.” Measurements of this sound show that it is no louder than a kitchen refrigerator or a standard air conditioning unit at a distance of 1,000 feet. Often the sound of a wind turbine on a windy day is indistinguishable from the sounds of the wind rustling through the trees and grass at these distances.

The project will comply with Apex’s internal guidelines on sound as well as local township wind ordinance requirements related to sound limitations at residences.
