We don't have them here in Indiana where we live yet, but I've heard the Wind Turbines do a great job.

Kristina C, Good news for you. There has been many recent advances in blade design, to which they are addressing the NOISE FACTOR. Yes, it can be quite LOUD. Sorry about that.

I will bore you with the details, oh, what the hell, it lies in an area of design somewhat like the air brake of an aircraft. Angle and pitch also come into play. Sleep well, hope and discovery is on its way.

Wind turbines are a great way of 'natural' energy - but they are very very loud, even when they are barely moving you can hear them.
I find the sound of wind calming - let's hope they will as well.

I agree. Turbines are better than the alternative.
