While I certainly can believe that it's really about tourism in that case, ever driven by a widn farm on a moderatly breezy day?

I drove through one last year with the windows up and I could hear the damn thngs inside the car as I drove past. Not loud but enough that it could be heard over the road noice and radio. I can't imagine that living nearby woudl be too onerous sicne people get used to noise (I used to live in a neighbor hood that was under the final approach for the local airport, next to a foundry and had a working rail corridor running through it. Never conciously heard any of them. Used to be able to ahve a conversation with someone, stop to let the jet land/train pass/foundry stop blowing steam and start talking again without missing a beat.

However, if I went to buy a house in a neighborhood with persistent noise-- be it highway traffic, train's planes or windwfarms--- I know I'd adjust my offer downward if I considered buying it at all.

So the real reason most people object to windfarms nearby their house is because of property value.
