Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It depends where you are, also. In places like Texas and Colorado, huge wind farms are possible because nobody lives anywhere nearby. In Indiana, they're more visible but still in a rural area. If you start putting them in suburbs, it's going to get ugly fast.

Well.  I don't think that anyone is planning on putting them in the suburbs.  Nonetheless the largest windfarm in Indiana is in Benton County  (2 projects, ~1000 MW), which is technically in the Lafayette Metro area.  You can actually see the towers from most places in Fowler, which is the county seat.  It doesn't really seem to have stirred up that much protest.
