There are good bits and bad bits about lots of green technologies although people usually prefer to discuss the main benefits of renewable power sources. If you are interested in a wind-powered system, you should check both the advantages and the disadvantages of wind energy. On the average, wind energy can be converted into electricity with the help of wind turbines. The availability of an electrical generator in the system will transform wind power into electricity.

The main problem with a wind-powered system is the number of turbines. Maybe wind-energy is cheap to produce, but the initial investment in the wind turbines could be considerable. The turbines are totally green, yet they can be very noisy, and thus they turn into a disturbing factor in inhabited areas. Some people even call this the biggest of all disadvantages of wind energy. The other problem is that you can't predict wind intensity and speed. Wind power is more efficiently produced in coastal areas than in inland regions, and even better out at sea on floating platforms.

This variability reduces the reliability of wind as a major power source in urban areas for instance. Wind is efficient as a source of energy in isolated locations with obstacles. Therefore, if we see the bigger picture here, we may get to the conclusion that wind power could prove more expensive to produce and transfer by transmission lines, than we may have thought in the first place.

Some critical voices even reproach the unsightliness of wind farms. Yet, such disadvantages of wind energy seem far-fetched if we consider the fact that renewable energy is worth the aesthetic sacrifice. Among other small inconvenience is that wind turbines could kill birds when spinning, but such occurrences have a low frequency rate. The available data does not allow us to draw a conclusion in this respect, that's for sure.

The interference with television reception is one more of the disadvantages of wind energy that you can frequently read about in online materials. Complaints have been filed in this respect, but their number remains reduced. This issue also requires further investigation in order to clarify the exact nature of the TV or radio signal problems. A specialist is the person to go for answers to your questions!
