Windturbines are getting bigger and bigger, larger
turbines pay off there investment (carbon as well as financial) more
than any other renewable energy source. Some turbines are in excess of
100 meters tall, and so many require an assessment of their visual impact.
A thorough site survey is the key to a visual impact assessment and no exceptions were made in this instance.
The report for a wind turbine in Cornwall includes photo montages and 3D models of the proposed wind turbine, the software used can virtualize images as seen from receptors (people living around the area) and give planners an idea of likely impacts.
