Wind energy, one of the most important renewable energy sources; It is clean, system efficient, abundant and free. Contrary to common belief, the noise level in wind turbines is very low. Let's examine the advantages and disadvantages so that we can find a better answer to the question of why wind energy.
It reduces foreign dependency in energy.
Wind farms can be easily dismantled and their land can be easily restored.
It is an energy obtained naturally.
It is a clean energy and has almost no harm to the environment.
It has no fuel consumption and does not pollute the air.
It does not indicate the pollution caused by fossil fuel power plants in electricity generation.
Since energy generation depends on the wind, energy loss occurs with the cut or decrease of the wind.
In order to produce energy in wind turbines, the wind must be at the optimum level.
Wind turbines generate high decibel sound. Therefore, they cause noise pollution.
It damages natural life and causes bird death.
It may affect the electromagnetic wave.
Undesirable situations such as overturning and burning may occur in wind turbines.
Turbine costs are high.
Large areas are required for wind turbines.
Cost to install (RES):
In order to make a comparison with other energy types in terms of wind power plant costs, the plant costs are as follows:
(USD / kW)
Hydraulic Plants: 750 - 1200
Lignite Plants: 1600
Imported Coal Power Plants: 1450
Natural Gas Plants: 680
Nuclear Power Plants: 3500
Wind Farms: 700 - 1450
WPPs, whose importance is understood by our country day by day and which is open to development on a sectoral basis, is an environmentalist and attractive area as an investment, is taking firm steps towards becoming the energy of the future.
