Shadow Flicker Assessments

SHADOW FLICKER ASSESSMENTS

Fast Proposals - up to 48hrs

We have been completing shadow flicker assessments for more than 15 years across numerous countries, so you can trust us to help you avoid costly turbine shutdowns and meet your planning deadlines.

Shadow flicker is caused by rotating wind turbine blades repeatedly intercepting the position of the Sun in the sky. When this effect is experienced through the window of a neighbouring property, the phenomenon can cause varying light levels that negatively impact the amenity of its occupiers. Pager Power can accurately determine the times and dates that shadow flicker can occur at these properties, with the objective of ensuring that your project is developed to the appropriate standards and optimising the requirement for turbine shutdown. This will reduce the likelihood of a shadow flicker objection materialising, which decreases the likelihood of experiencing delays and incurring additional costs for your project.

How is shadow flicker assessed?

Shadow flicker is normally assessed for properties in the vicinity of a wind turbine, with the maximum assessed distance between turbine and property typically being a function of the rotor diameter. A geometric model is then used to determine how often the turbine’s rotor would intercept the line of sight between a window in a property and the Sun. The duration of shadow flicker is then calculated and assessed against the most applicable guidance. To find out more about our assessment process, click here.
