The Advantages and Disadvantages of wind power
AdvantagesSome advantages of wind power are that its a clean source of energy and it doesn't give off pollution unlike fossil fuels, oil and coal when they are burned to make energy. Also wind power is not very expensive to get because once you get wind turbines the wind is free. Also wind turbines take up very little ground and they are often built in fields and pastures. Also you can get wind turbines in lots of different shapes and sizes. Also remote areas that are not connected to the electricity power grid can use wind turbines to produce there own supply.
Some disadvantages of solar power are wind turbines can be very noisey. Also wind turbines don't blow the same speed all the time so you need to store power in batteries or have a backup power supply. Also wind turbines can hurt birds if they fly into the turbine blades. Also at some times the wind turbines will produce no energy. Also many people think that wind turbines are ugly and look bad in fields and pastures.
