What type of pollution is created from obtaining energy from wind power?
There is no air, land or water pollution from wind power. Wind turbines in use have a noise which some people call noise pollution.

Wind energy is generally captured with windmills. \n \n \nThe term windmill was actually termed to describe using wind to produce mechanical energy to run a mill such as a gr…ain mill to produce flower.\n \n \nIn the USA, many of the early windmills powered mechanical pumps for water, especially water to feed animals in remote areas.\n \n \nMost modern windmills incorporate a generator and are now used to produce electricity rather than mechanical energy.
No. The only pollution wind turbines put out is in the construction of a wind turbine. Once they are built and turn the power of the wind into electrical energy, there is no p…ollution. And only a few birds and bats are killed by wind turbines. Far less birds and bats are killed by wind turbines, than are killed by other sources of energy producing power plants. Wind pollutes in the construction of the unit. It also pollutes whenever the unit is maintained. There is also the 100,000 birds and bats killed each year in Massachusetts alone. More are killed in other states. This is an environmental issue that should not be ignored. The real issue though is the small amount of power they use. A typical generator, when running, will deliver about 8% of the claimed power. The rated power is based on a steady 28 mph wind. Should the average wind lower to 14 mph, you will see 10% of rated. Winds over 31 mph cause a braking action and actually cause systems to consume power.
No, the collection of wind energy into usable electricity does not release any pollutants.
Wind energy is obtained by placing wind turbines in high-wind areas. The rotation of the turbine spins multiple large gears which power a generator, which in turn generates 10…0% green energy.
No, Wind power is just a renewable energy. Solar energy only covers energy from the sun.
no because wind energy is natural energy
no because the wind spinds the windmills which then generate power
No. Setting a turbine on the train will create drag, making the train harder to drive(=using up more power). And the amount of energy that you'd get from the turbine will be l…ess than the amount of energy that you'd had to add to keep the train moving.
There is a machine, this machine reacts to wind. Like a fan, it moves when wind passes throught it. When its moving its creating a friction inside of the machine and the frict…ion is harnest into a energy source used by humans.
well, wind is free, but u have to biuld turbines, which are NOT free, so not really...
None, unless you want to count possible pollution produced in the manufacturing process of making the wind turbine
A wind turbine, which is installed on top of a tall tower, collects kinetic energy from the wind and converts it to electricity that is compatible with a home's electrical sys…tem.In a normal residential application, a home is served simultaneously by the wind turbine and a local utility. If the wind speeds are below the wind turbine's start up speed there will be no output from the turbine and all of the needed power is purchased from the utility. As wind speeds increase, turbine output increases and the amount of power purchased from the utility is proportionately decreased. When the turbine produces more power than the house needs, the extra electricity is sold to the utility (net metering). All of this is done automatically.
Because wind is part of nature. It doesn't release carbon dioxide emissions like fossil fuels do, so it isn't causing global warming and climate change.
As the earth rotates, it is executing movement, therefore the form of energy to create wind is known as kinetic (moving) energy. I hope I answered your question correct to yo…ur standards.
The output is not constant. It varies during different times of the day and is seasonal. * Can't be controlled. * Initial Capital Cost is very high .
