We are a community energy group wanting to apply for planning permission for a wind turbine.  We need to find out that our selected site is not interfering with electromagnetic communications from phone masts, TV, radio, MoD etc,.  Does anyone know who we should be contacting to find out?

Good morning John,

Can we assume you are intending to install a small wind turbine (the general definition is a turbine with an output >1kw and <50kw)?

If so it is worth remembering that turbines of this size are regularly installed right next to telecoms towers too remote to use power from the grid.

You can see these ones are right next to the telecoms tower: http://www.bergey.com/posts/2010/8/24/offshore_savanah_georgia

Here's another: http://www.bergey.com/posts/2010/8/24/laisamis_kenya

There is as I understand it no evidence to suggest that turbines of this size cause any form of interference.

I would be happy to visit your proposed site and offer some free advice on the location if that is any use to you.
