Wind Energy

Oregon Department of Human Services, Public Health Division

The draft Wind Energy Health Impact Assessment is a tool to help community members, elected officials and Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) understand and respond to health-related questions about wind energy developments in Oregon.

This initial HIA on wind energy is not focused on a specific facility or community. Rather, it focuses more broadly on what is currently known about the health impacts from wind farms, and the policies and standards used to site wind facilities in Oregon.
