Wind turbines and house prices

A study conducted by Assistant Professor Corey Lang in the Department of Environmental and Natural Resource Economics found that wind turbines in Rhode Island do not negatively effect property values.  Numerous media outlets reported on the results of his study, including the Providence Journal, Providence Business News, GoLocalProv, North American Windpower, and the Associated Press, whose story was included on the Huffington Post, CNBC, BusinessWeek, New England Cable News, and elsewhere.  The URI news release about the study can be found here.
