Edison Mission Group, a unit of Edison International (NYSE: EIX), plans to install acoustic louvers on all 22 turbines at the 55 MW Pinnacle Wind Farm in Mineral County, W.Va., according to The Charleston Gazette.
The equipment is being installed at a cost of $500,000 to address a complaint nearby residents filed over excessive noise with the state Public Service Commission, the article said.
A prototype acoustic louver was recently used in a field test at one of the turbines and reportedly reduced the noise, according to Edison Mission Group. Edison Mission also will re-surface portions of two public roads adjacent to the site, the company said.
