ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF WIND POWER
Advantages of Wind Power?
-Wind power has a remarkably small impact upon the carbon footprint.
-There are zero carbon emissions associated with the operation of wind turbines.
-The only emissions emitted from wind turbines arise from their manufacture, construction and maintenance…. Learn more advantages.
Disadvantages of Wind Power?
-Wind turbines depend on a suitable wind speed in order to generate electricity.
-If wind speed is below a certain threshold, turbines depend on other forms of electricity generation in order to operate.
-Planning permission can be hard to get hold of for onshore wind farms due to the visual impact of the turbines…. Learn more disadvantages.
