In 2012 Scottish Power Renewables claimed “There is no medical evidence to suggest that wind turbines affect health”. This claim appeared in the FAQ section of their web site promoting the Mynydd Mynyllod Windfarm in Wales. After a complaint to the ASA, and an investigation lasting more than nine months Scottish Power Renewables have assured the ASA that they will “make the basis for claims for health and wind farms clearer, avoiding definitive claims”.

At the time of writing Scottish Power appear to have removed the claim from their web site:
