French Court Orders Turbines Shut Down at Night

In a decision issued this past December 1, the Court of Appeal of Rennes
ordered the eight wind turbines installed in Cast and Châteaulin to be halted from 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.

This represents a victory for the members of the Association for the Protection of Ménez, Quelec’h and Saint-Gildas, who had filed a legal action in January 2008 against the disturbance caused by these wind turbines.

The builder, Nordex, had appealed this decision, and carried out considerable operations in the meantime. However, Nordex did not provide any  justification or acoustic measurement to prove that these disturbances have been significantly reduced.
