Property Values are Not Affected by Land-based Wind Turbines

Studies show no evidence of long-term impacts on property values from wind farms in rural areas.

Key Takeaways:

  • Numerous studies show that the planning, construction, and operation of utility-scale wind turbine installations have no long-term negative impact on property values.
  • Limited research suggests that the installation of wind turbines can lead to a regional increase in property values, particularly in rural communities.
  • Wind installations can economically benefit communities in numerous ways by bolstering the tax base, providing jobs, and raising per-capita income.

Utility-scale wind energy is the largest source of renewable electricity generation in the United States and is growing continuously. There are over 70,000 wind turbines deployed across the U.S., capable of generating 146 gigawatts of clean, reliable electricity – enough wind power to serve 46 million American homes.

However, a concern among some homeowners is the perception that wind turbine installations can reduce property values in an area. Extensive research indicates this is not the case.
