An expert report has concluded that there’s no direct health risk from wind turbine sound at Ontario’s regulated setback distance. The study analyzed the latest findings on low frequency noise and infrasound from wind turbines and found that the province’s rules to control wind turbine sound are rigorous. Ontario has a 550 metre minimum setback, based on a 40 decibel limit, which is aligned with the limits set by the World Health Organization.
