Wisconsin: County Board of Health Declares Shirley Wind Farm a Health Hazard!!!

Edgar County Watchdog — October 14, 2014


Tonight, October 14, 2014, the Brown County Board of Health voted to declare the Shirley Wind [Farm] a Human Health Hazard. The decision was based on a report of a year-long study conducted by the Enz family with some help from an Illinois resident to document infrasound in homes within a radius of 6 miles of the Shirley Wind turbines.

The vote to declare it a Human Health Hazard puts Duke Energy’s Shirley Wind utility on the defensive to prove to the Board they are not the cause of the health complaints documented in the study and could result in a shut down order.

It is time for Illinois county health departments to start receiving complaints lodged based on wind turbines since a Wisconsin health department declared wind turbines as a health hazard and caused so many problems for families.

This is like having a swimming pool with no fence to keep toddlers from drowning. We should not be doing this to the children of our communities! They have suffered enough.

It is the duty of county health departments to collect information related to human health within their respective counties. Without a reporting mechanism, no collection can be had and therefore, the false reporting of no complaints filed will continue.

Information on the Shirley Wind Farm from Duke Energy’s web page:

    Reblogged this on windfarmaction and commented:
    The tide is turning and how long before we see adverts on the TV from no win/no fee solicitors suing the wind industry. Funny thing is many wind farms are technically small stand alone companies with no assets so the land owner is they one who is going to end up as a correspondent and losing his shirt!

    I would like to see the records showing the production of said electricity and who are the benefactors of said “electrcity “. How is it converted to usable electricity and at what cost ?
