1 2

Wind Power has a number of advantages which should be noted. It is an anti-pollutant and is renewable. However, there are a number of disadvantages that one should note as well. This article examines the 10 disadvantages of wind power, if ever used.



The wind and its strength is not constant and varies from 0 to storm force. Electricity thus is not produced the same all the time.



Given that the wind is not constant, the energy is not reliable. Many times the wind is too low to support wind turbines or wind farms.



Wind turbines can become noisy. The equivalence is similar to a car travelling driving approximately 100 to 110 km/h.



Wind power does produce pollution, especially when it is being manufactured. Pollution is created by the machines that build will turbines.



Not a lot of homes can be powered by 1 turbine. For example, a single large turbine can provide electricity for 475 homes. This would be ideal for rural homes, but not for homes in suburban and urban areas.
