Wind energy is free and with modern technology can be captured very efficiently. Many people find wind farms an interesting feature on the landscape. Wind turbines after being manufactured produce no greenhouse gases. A disadvantage is that wind is not consistent from zero to gale force. Others see the farm of turbines as an eye sore and that the country should be left untouched. Wind turbines can also be noisy.
Advantages::

  • renewable
  • cheaper than nuclear
  • no pollution
  • beautiful (most are elegantly designed)
  • quiet
  • sustainable energy source
  • the advantages of wind turbines are that they produce electricity.

Disadvantages::

  • can kill birds and flying mammals
  • noise pollution
  • sight pollution (unsightly)
  • take up a lot of space
  • unreliable (only work when there's wind)
  • no jobs provided
  • expensive
  • They can be a navigation issue for some low flying planes.

Wind power is an alternative energy source that is being used now. The biggest advantage is that it is not polluting. The disadvantage is that it was said to kill birds and it only works when there is sufficient wind.

Disadvantages 1)Wind power needs a lot of land. 2)wind power is a hard subtences to get in a town where they do not get that much wind . 3)Towns that do not get this much wind that is needed for the turbines .


advantages- its clean. disadvantages- its not as vierment friendly as solar power.


Advantages? You can count on it being on schedule. If you use wind power you can never tell when the wind will stop or blow to hard. The tides are on schedule so you can count on them. Disadvantages: Twice a day the tide stops and changes direction.


advantage: solar power disadvantages: hydro power


IT is renewable.Aside from being renewable, the advantages of hydropower include:steadier, more consistent power.has 1,000 times more kinetic power than the wind.continuous production day and night regardless of the weather.smoother production of power than solar or wind power.higher power production than wind.
