During past few years, wind power structures have gained a lot of popularity. The eco favorable systems along with the clean and natural energy that it creates are the grounds for its popularity. Some scientists have declared that wind power is far more advantageous to that of the solar power as its still usable even after the sun sets. Wind power is a free energy source and it eleminates the use of any material for generating energy. Nevertheless wind power energy has its disfavours, there s a high price needed in setting up these wind turbines adding onto that the need for the right placement to be set up needs to be considered. Wind energy is not that simple when it comes to installation and can be quite complex.
Most of the systems require maintenance on a regular basis and as well as the replacing particular parts. These parts such as battery packs are quite costly. One of the disadvantages of wind energy is that depending on the unpredictable nature of producing energy. The potential of wind energy relies on the speed of wind, if the wind slows down the entire system will not work towards its capacity. Only particular regions in the United States will there be continuous wind energy available. In terms of the other areas, it s not feasible to switch to wind energy even if it s cost effective. In case the wind is not steady, there should be backup resources available generating the demand.
The other disfavor of wind energy is that it s often located in remote regions; this increases the costs of transporting the energy that s produced in these farms. Wind energy needs to be received by a large number of individuals if it were to be useful. Adding onto the transferring this energy may not be that easy. Wind resource development may be a contest for other uses of land. Instead of allocating the land for wind energy it can be used for generate something more important to the nation.
There is a particular level of pollution from wind energy plants although it is just a fraction when compared to other energy generation methods. The noise that s produced by the rotor blades can create aesthetic visible impacts and sometimes birds get killed by flying into these rotor blades. Wind farms take up a lot of space in order to be setup, in countries where space is limited this is not favorable. For a wind energy generator to start work, it requires the assistance of an external power source. These are the few disadvantages that wind energy which could impact its consumption.
