CARSON CITY - Building a 75-foot-tall wind turbine adjacent to a quiet subdivision is a nuisance because, in part, it ruins the scenery and creates noise, the Nevada Supreme Court has ruled.
The court, in a decision by Justice Jim Hardesty, said the turbine would also cause "shadow flicker," an alternating pattern of light and dark shadows occurring when the blades rotate in the sun.[Las Vegas SUN]
