Wind Turbine Noise

The Challenge:

Ensuring that noise from wind power plants can be accurately measured so that noise emissions can be monitored.

The Innovation:

As wind power remains a popular green energy choice, noise control from wind power plants is a growing concern. The regulatory requirements on wind power call for high precision measurements. As experts in wind measurement and monitoring, Aercoustics has developed wind turbine noise measurement protocols for the Ontario Ministry of Environment and sit as Acoustic Advisors on Energy Projects for the State of Vermont. Delivering unbiased data and straight facts, we are also the only firm in Canada accredited to measure wind turbine noise emissions as per the IEC 61400-11 standard. Different parts of Canada regulate noise from wind power facilities in their own ways.
We’ve measured infrasound, and audible sound and vibration, inside and outside homes, for residents and wind companies.
