    I can’t speak to big commercial windmills for a personal property, but every farm used to have at least one water windmill pump and often close to the house. So as far as noise, they were rickety and made noise but you live with what you have to.

    Years ago, we made a windmill washing machine from a Mother Earth News design and it was not quiet, but not super loud.

    I guess it depends on what kind of system you’re talking about, but I’ve lived with these smaller windmills and I’ve lived in the Arizona desert with wind scoops and wind exhaust vents/turbines and they were fine.

    Again, I don’t know what kind of system you’re talking about but I would think a few smaller and less noisy windmills could easily generate quite a bit of power and you could keep those well oiled and in good repair.
