Fact 1: Cars are Noisier than Windmills


Extensive testing shows that a windfarm 500 metres away is less noisy than a car traveling at 40 miles an hour half a block away. A wind farm 2 km away will not produce enough sound to be heard above the normal background noise of a rural nighttime or a quiet bedroom.
