WINCHESTER, Ind. (AP): The operators of a central Indiana wind farm are working to correct problems with a wind turbine that's prompted nearby residents to complain about an irritating noise.

E.ON Climate & Renewables project manager Andy Melka says one of Wildcat Wind Farm's turbines is creating the noise because it's unable to properly face into the direction of the wind.

The turbine's noise level was 51.6 decibels, putting it above the 50-decibel noise limit.

Melka says crews will make a permanent fix to the turbine in the near future and they may lower the speed of the rotor as the wind speed exceeds a certain
level.
