Wind Power-Related Studies
Through consultation with stakeholders, we’re aware of concerns about wind power. When we’re out in the community we’re commonly asked about specific peer-reviewed wind power related health studies. As a result we have posted recent literature on the topic here in order to make this easier for our stakeholders to access:
