PROS One of the lowest-priced renewableenergy sources Can relieve fossil fuel shortages Doesn't produce any pollution Provides cleaner airand a healthyenvironment. Wind Energyis a renewable energy source. Wind is a form of solar energythat is a result of uneven heatingof the atmosphere, irregularities ofthe Earth's surface, and the rotationof the Earth. What is Wind Energy? CONS Wind turbines bladeskill 20-30,000 birdsa year Turbines make very loud loises and vibrations that tend to disturb homes nearby "We're 2,400 feet away and it's really unbearable. It shakes the house and goes through our bones and bodies," David Wylie, who lives near three wind turbines in Maine. Productivity Statistics - Wind Energy is the fastest growing segment of all renewable energy sources - Wind Energy, unlike some, is very economically competitive Wind can be unpredictable, inconsistent, and often unsteady -There has been a 31% increase of installations of new wind power added to the U.S. grid from 2010 to 2011 - The U.S. was one of the world's largest and fastest growing wind markets in 2011 - In 2011 wind power represented 32% of all new electric capacity additions in the U.S - accounting for $14 billion in new investments. Sustainability Wind is sustainable energy, since it can not be depleted. You can never "run-out" of wind energy as opposed to many otherrenewable energy sources. Wind power can be stored for future use. Environmental Impact Wind Energy doesn't produce any hazardous waste. Helps prevent global warming. Some dangerous emissions are released into the environment during construction process. Cleaner air, healthier environment.
