How wind turbines annoy residents and how to reduce it

When falling asleep, relaxing or undertaking recreational activities, nearly a third of residents living near a wind farm are not at all annoyed or only slightly annoyed by the noise of wind turbines. One in ten people experience symptoms of stress. However, noise is not the only problem. In particular, a critical attitude towards a wind farm stimulates the experience of stress. A better information policy during the planning phase could help alleviate problems for more
