Findings from the assessment were positive.
Predicted sound levels from the wind turbines are below Draft NSW Wind Farm Guidelines for all properties on the Island. Also, background noise on the Island is high so sounds from the turbines will be effectively masked.
See the fact sheet below on wind turbine sound and come along to the Community Markets at the school on Sunday 10 May from 10:30am.
Sam and Mel from Jacobs will be back on the Island to talk about the noise assessment and the renewable energy project in general.
