I was wondering if anyone has advice on living near or purchasing property in an Industrial Wind Turbine project zone? Seems more and more of these massive electrical generation facilities are popping up in the countryside.

I wouldn't want to live within a half mile. I suppose you could get used to the noise, just like people get used to living next to the railroad tracks or right above a freeway, but there are other reasons. Where I grew up, the wind farms were built in "the pass" where the winds were the highest because the mountains funneled the wind that way. It was always the low rent district, because nobody wanted to live where the wind howled the hardest. The preferred areas were right up against the base of the mountain, sheltered from the wind. That way, at least you could keep the paint job on your car from one year to the next.
