What will proximity to wind turbines do to my property values?

No matter the type or size of a wind turbine, researchers have found no statistical evidence that home values near turbines are affected before, during, or after construction. On the contrary, wind projects can reduce property tax payments for individuals due to a more dispersed tax base and the new revenue these projects bring can benefit local schools and services, which often lead to increased property values overall. If it would be of interest to the community, we can work with a third-party appraiser to conduct a study of home values around other Indiana wind farms to consider how this might apply in Vermillion County specifically.
