ORANGEVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Residents in Wyoming County have filed a $40 million lawsuit against the owner of the Orangeville wind farm, Invenergy.
A group of about 60 town residents filed the suit on August 1 in Wyoming County stating that the constant noise and vibrations cause sickness, soreness, lameness and disability.
The plaintiffs accuse Invenergy of violating the town’s 50-decibel noise ordinance and diminishing their property values.
Invenergy issued a statement last week saying it will vigorously fight what they say are unfounded claims.
The Orangeville Wind Farm has 58 turbines, each about 430-feet tall.
