Noise recording at a home near wind turbines in Vinalhaven, Maine

Sample noise recording at a home near the 3 wind turbines in Vinalhaven, Maine, as approved by the Maine State DEP. Remember that the DEP limit already represents a substantial increase over the preexisting ambient sound levels, which is likely to have around 35 dB or less. An increase in noise level of more than 6 dB causes widespread annoyance and disruption. An increase of 10 dB is perceived as a doubling of noise level.
