I know Dr. Fletcher gave a presentation on shadow flicker, and I've
heard that he gave one on sound pressure levels. (although I haven't
seen it yet) So I think those two topics are covered.
Then National Wind Coordinating Committee, Safe Wind.info, and the US
Fish and Wildlife service have published considerable literature on the
impact to wildlife. There is so much that I will probably need some help
determining how much is relevant to MI.
By the way, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority
has published several very informative documents. Two in particular
caught my eye. "Wind Energy Development Guide for Local for Local
Authorities in NY" and the "Small Wind Consumer's Guide". I think I
might be able to 'borrow' some information from these documents for our
Norm thought you and Tom would also find this document very useful:
"Using Wind Power to Hedge Volatile Electricity Prices for Commercial
and Industrial Customers in New York"
They are all available for download from:

The next step:
The next step for the project is to develop a 'wish list' of tutorials.
Since the success of the survey depends on participants being as
possible on all aspects of the issues. I'd like to be able to provide
articles/tutorials on 8-10 topics.
I'd appreciate it if everyone would let me know what they think would be
most important topics to cover.
P.S. I use email@example.com for all the mailing lists in
