Wind Turbine Noise and Health in the New Zealand Context

Dr Daniel Shepherd

Executive Summary


"British acoustician Dr Geoff Leventhall makes the claim that because wind turbines don't produce low frequencies, then people can't hear them and therefore they are making up their complaints.”

Upon investigation we have found that the claims made in this statement are unsubstantiated. We have therefore withdrawn them from the book.

We wish to sincerely apologise to Dr Leventhall for any distress and inconvenience that these claims may have caused him.
