Industrial Wind Turbines
in Posey and Gibson
County concern us all.

Our goal is to inform our neighbors and fellow county residents about the issues of

Safety, Property Rights, Health, and Property Values regarding industrial wind turbines in Posey County.

On August 20th members from the National Weather Service spoke to officials in Gibson County on the impact wind turbines can have on our NEXRAD Doppler located in Owensville, IN. Mr. Scheller was present for this meeting.

Trespass Zoning

Violating the property rights of our neighbors is one of the many concerns we have of the industrial wind turbine project proposal as it’s currently written for Posey and Gibson County

**Critical Public Safety Risk – Weather Radar performance impact with proposed local Wind Turbines**  “This is a serious, very serious threat. It decreases the public’s margin of safety.” -Don Waddell, an Emergency Manager, physicist, licensed FCC radio operator, and member of the American Meteorological Society.

wind turbines and their effects on the radar

(The proposed project is within 10 miles of the Doppler)

Within 18 km [11.1mi] wind turbines cause additional impacts including: clutter on multiple elevation scans, multipath clutter down range of the wind turbines, and greater impacts to radar algorithms. Multipath scattering from wind turbines can extend the contaminated data up to 40 km beyond the wind farm. Turbines sited within 4 km [2.5mi] of the radar may also cause significant (>10%) attenuation/blockage of the radar beam impacting data throughout the entire range (460 km-reflectivity, 300 km-velocity) of the radar.
