Advantages and disadvantages. Wind is a renewable energy resource and there are no fuel costs. No harmful polluting gases are produced. On the other hand, wind farms are noisy and may spoil the view for people living near them.
People also ask, why wind power is the best?
It's a clean fuel source. Wind energy doesn't pollute the air like power plants that rely on combustion of fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas, which emit particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide—causing human health problems and economic damages.
Which is better wind or solar power?
Wind is a more efficient power source than solar. Compared to solar panels, wind turbines release less CO2 to the atmosphere, consume less energy, and produce more energy overall. In fact, one wind turbine can generate the same amount of electricity per kWh as about 48,704 solar panels.
How long is a wind turbine expected to last?
A wind turbine typically lasts around 20-25 years. During this time some parts may need replacing. The very first of the mass-produced turbines, the Vestas 30kW machine, has been in operation since 1980 and has operated steadily throughout its lifetime, without the need for any major components to be replaced.
