What is the history and/or estimate of how allowing a company to put wind turbines on your farmland affect the value of the property?

Flying Hippo / August 8, 2016

Property values are determined based on a number of local factors of which a wind turbine may be included. The size, ownership, and income stream resulting from any lease payments of the wind turbine owner need to be factored in when determining it’s real value. We suggest that the question be asked of the local county assessor’s office.
