The Department of Energy has just released a new study finding "...no statistical evidence that home values near turbines were affected in the post-construction or post-announcement/ pre-construction periods." These conclusions are supported by data from more than 50,000 homes sales among 27 counties in nine states. The homes were all within 10 miles of 67 different wind facilities, and 1,198 sales were within one mile of a turbine. This sample size is much larger than samples included in previous studies.
The study concludes, "...The core results of our analysis consistently show no sizable statistically significant impact of wind turbines on nearby property values."
