Dare County Zoning Code : Chapter 155 , Section 22-29.3 Wind Energy Systems On a local regulatory level , Dare County has established regulations for wind energy systems in Section 22‐29.3 . These regulations were adopted in 2011 prior to the enactment of the state legislation previously discussed . The wind energy systems regulations for Dare County are focused on wind energy development that is related to collegiate work and research . Wind energy development outside of the university research forum is not regulated by this ordinance . The County ’ s ordinance is quite thorough requiring various components studied in an environmental assessment ( EA ). The components assessed during the environmental review are noise , shadow flicker , vibrations , and impacts on viewsheds , wetlands , and various other resources including community activities . While the EA required for this university research wind energy development , the ordinance does not stipulate formal coordination with the military . The ordinance indicates appropriate coordination with agencies including federal and state agencies is a requirement , it does not specifically reference the military installation located in the county . As such this ordinance is not consistent with the state legislation that was adopted in 2013 , which requires formal coordination with the military and to allow comment and feedback from the military regarding potential impacts to the military mission .
