His conclusions, wind turbines do not add a contributor value to a parcel of land and thus increase the land values. Based on a sample of 600 properties that sold in the area of wind turbines over a 3 year period, he discovered the following:
1) days on the market were more than doubled for those properties inside the wind turbine zone (3 Nautical miles)
2) the sold price was on avg. $48,000 lower inside the wind turbine zone
3) the number of homes not sold was 11% inside the turbine zone compared to 3% outside.
