Taiwan’s Air Force says all wind farms in Taiwan have passed evaluations to guarantee they won't affect the operation of Taiwan's military radar.The Air Force's comment came in response to a local newspaper report alleging that some ongoing wind energy projects could jeopardize the combat preparedness of Taiwan's armed forces.


United Daily News quoted an unidentified source as saying that wind turbines emit infrasound, a low-frequency noise inaudible to the human ear that has the potential to impact radar beams and interfere with radar systems.

Asked to comment, the Air Force said the government reviews the establishment of all wind farms beforehand to make sure they won't affect the operations of national defence facilities.It adds that all approved wind farms have cleared related reviews to make sure they won't interfere with the operations of radar, airports or missile systems.
