AbstractEnergy recovered from wind farms is becoming very popular in North America. However, the environmental impact of large wind farms is still under study and regulations are being fine-tuned to alleviate the impacts. Noise is perceived to be a major environmental concern of wind farms. The overall characteristics of wind farms and its noise potential will be discussed in this short review paper through a case study. Appropriate regulatory guidelines will be applied and the noise impact of wind farms are assessed and discussed in this paper.
