Can my wind turbine affect neighbors surrounding me?
While a wind tower may be on your property and a considerable distance from the neighbors, the neighbors most likely will be affected by seeing the tower, noise or restrictions placed upon them. Often overlooked is aerial crop spraying. If the tower is closer than 2,000 feet to a neighbor, pilots may resist spraying a portion of the neighbor's crop.
