Noise is an issue that wind energy developers must consider, especially as they work with residents near the proposed site. Those who live near a wind turbine or wind farm want to know about possible additional noise from the startup or operation of the turbine(s).
CPP can assess the actual noise from a turbine start-up, its ongoing operational noise, the mitigating effects of vegetation or terrain, and the possible effects of nighttime inversions on turbine noise, and a comparison to background noise. Our engineers can then create a decibel map of the site and its surroundings and measure the results against any applicable noise regulations.
Having accurate, useful information is crucial for addressing the concerns of residents near wind energy sites. CPP can help provide the tools to address
