“Do wind turbines affect property values?”
With more wind turbines and wind farms being placed on or near personal property, it’s an important question being asked by property owners, town officials and siting committees.
Now, we’re not talking about small windmills or DIY windmills. We’re talking about industrial wind turbines (as seen on right). The turbines found in wind farms are typically 400 feet tall from base to blade tip. That’s taller than the Statue of Liberty. And the spinning diameter of the blades is wide enough to comfortably fit a Boeing 747.
