Table two

 

•  Zero emissions of greenhouse gases.

Lack of toxic gases during wind electric energy generation, makes these technologies some of the most harmless for environment.

 

•  Wind generators have comparatively low rates of noise.

Even turbines with power up to 2 MW are inaudible at a distance of 500 meter off the installation. A research of the public opinion during construction of wind parks shows that 80% of the population is in favor of the them.

 

•  Wind stations are harmless for surrounding fauna.

So far there are no recorded cases for killed birds by the propellers of the wind generators.

 

 

•  Wind stations do not harm agricultural land.

Even huge wind farms, consisting of 10 and more wind generators do not affect land use.
