Wall of Pain #2: Wind Turbines and the “Inverse Condemnation” of Property
Mar 25, 2012
“Mr. McCann has confirmed a 25-40 percent reduction is to be expected within two miles and that smaller reductions over a larger area should also be anticipated.”
The approval of wind energy projects within close proximity to occupied homes is tantamount to an inverse condemnation, or regulatory taking of private property rights, as the noise and impacts are in some respects a physical invasion, an easement in gross over neighboring properties, and the direct impacts reduce property values and the rights of nearby neighbors.”

Editor’s note: We honor those who have experienced a 25-40 percent loss of property value from wind turbines sited nearby. We also honor those who got zero cash for their “inversely condemned” homes, which they had to abandon owing to the physical invasion of infrasound and shadow flicker. And, lastly, we honor those who were bought out by wind developers and then forced to sign a gag agreement, never to discuss the terms of this “regulatory taking” of their land and home.
