To-date, TE has assisted Maine DEP on six wind turbine projects, dealing with issues of low-frequency and infrasound, acoustic model uncertainties and model validation, Short Duration Repetitive Sounds, post-construction sound compliance monitoring and compliance data analysis. Tech Environmental has provided acoustic consulting on 54 wind energy projects throughout the U.S., working for both developers and for host communities as an independent peer-review expert.
