Production of wind power installations have increased in the recent years, leading several people to be exposed to wind turbines. The aim of this thesis is to trace possible change in peoples’ attitudes and preferences towards wind power after being exposed in their immediate housing area, which is presented as the main research question. In addition, five hypotheses substantiates our research question were conducted to find reasons for whether the respondents' attitude has changed. It is concluded that respondents experience a negative shift in their attitude and preferences towards wind power after being exposed, mainly due to indirect negative effects such as deterioration of natural and cultural landscape.
