What does a wind turbine sound like? This footage was shot at Enbridge Wind Farm at Underwood, Ontario. There are 110 Vestas V82 turbines there, each one with an output of 1.65 MW. The height of the hub is approximately 70m and the the blades have a diameter of 82m. Wind turbines make different noises at different times under different weather conditions and this was just an average sunny day. Retired nurse Norma Schmidt lives nearby – and she says she isn’t getting much sleep.
