  1. Aercoustics is a member of CanWEA, ie. paid shills for the wind industry. Their review never once included a survey of residents who are experiencing noise problems. Their proposed methods, never include times when residents are experiencing disruption. These so called professional people were not interested in finding out what is truly the problem, they just wanted to find a way to meet the MOE noise guidelines which are hugely flawed. (i.e. do not include 5 decibel penalty for cyclic noise, allow attenuation factors because rural areas have nice soft ground, who cares about these in the winter when they are frozen). I also reviewed one of their so called noise assessments done at a residents home, they supposedly found a 42 dBA noise level @ 120 Hz which they could not corelate to the outside turbine noise, therefore basically attributed the noise problem for the resident as their own problem. Come to find out later after speaking with this resident, that the company installed their inside meter next to the computer which they allow to run night and day. We are being duped by these so called professionals simply on the basis that regular folk don’t understand how noise is propogated. Aercoustics should be charged.
