The California Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has conducted an analysis of more than 50,000 home sales near 67 wind facilities in 27 counties across nine U.S. states. The study found no impact of nearby wind turbines on home property values.

Ben Hoen, the lead author of the report, said that “This is the second of two major studies we have conducted on this topic, the first was published in 2009, and in both studies, using two different datasets, we find no statistical evidence that operating wind turbines have had any measureable impact on home sales prices… Although there have been claims of significant property value impacts near operating wind turbines that regularly surface in the press or in local communities, strong evidence to support those claims has failed to materialize in all of the major US studies conducted thus far”.
