Wind energy is a clean renewable energy source; unlike fossil fuel power plants, wind farms produce no air and water pollution.
Wind energy eliminates carbon emissions, 1MW of wind energy can offset approximately 2,600 tons of carbon dioxide (according to NREL).
No water is required in the generation of electricity from wind energy. This is a valuable benefit as it helps saves water resources, especially in water-scare environments.
The fauna and flora of the land used for wind farms is preserved, and can still be used for agriculture after erection of turbines.
Despite concerns regarding the environmental impact of wind farms on bird and bat numbers, studies show that wind turbines cause less bird and bat fatalities than many other human activities.
