The first big myth about windmills and wind turbines is that they are very noisy.

Not a very scientific look at wind turbine noise, looking at a random sales site.

Small turbines don't infact produce much noise about 40ish dB, they dont produce much power either.


3MW turbines do produce a hell of a lot of noise. Some are on the order of 100dB.
