Why wind energy is the most efficient

Wind energy is the most efficient because it keeps the environment clean.

It also is an actual part of nature too.

It is very easy to use and doesn't pollute the environment.

You don't need a lot of training to install it.

Pros and Cons

The pros of wind energy are:

  1. Wind energy is a green energy source and does not cause pollution.
  2. The potential of wind power is enormous – 20 times more than what the entire human population needs.[1]
  3. Wind power is renewable and there is no way we can run out of it (since wind energy originates from the sun).
  4. Wind turbines are incredible space-efficient. The largest of them generate enough electricity to power 600 U.S. homes.[2]
  5. Wind power only accounts for about 2.5% of total worldwide electricity production, but is growing at a promising rate of 25% per year (2010).[3]
  6. The cons of wind energy are:
  7. 1.Wind is a fluctuating (intermittent) source of energy and is not suited to meet the base load energy demand unless some form of energy storage is utilized (e.g. batteries, pumped hydro).
  8. 2.The manufacturing and installation of wind turbines requires heavy upfront investments – both in commercial and residential applications.
  9. 3.Wind turbines can be a threat to wildlife (e.g. birds, bats).
  10. 4.Noise is regularly reported as a problem by neighboring homes.
  11. 5.How wind turbines look (aesthetics) is a legitimate concern for some people.

Cost, Environmental Impact, and Where you can get it from

The prices range from $31 to $84 per MWh.

It produces no toxic pollution or global warming emissions

Wind turbines, like windmills, are mounted on a tower to capture the most energy.
