Why giant turbines are pushing the limits...of patience

This North Shore Community Has Had Enough Of Towering Wind Turbines

"In a move that could have significant implications for where wind farms are located on Oahu, the Honolulu City Council is considering three bills that would increase the distance that large wind turbines must be set back from other properties. One requires larger windmills to be set back at least 1.25 miles from residential properties; another at least 1,500 feet or twice the system’s height, whichever is greater, from all property lines; and the third at least 5 miles from all property lines.

“It is beyond comprehension why this small town of Kahuku has to deal with this,” said Honolulu City Council member Heidi Tsuneyoshi, who represents the town and who has sponsored a bill that she said seeks to ensure other communities do not suffer the same sort of impact. 'This was a wake-up call as far as saying enough is enough.'"
