Wind power is one of the most popular choices of clean and green energy. It has the benefit of not creating noxious emissions, and turbines can be easily installed and bought into operation, unlike creating a nuclear plant or drilling for oil.
Below is a fantastic time-lapse video showing the construction of the largest wind farm in Southeast Asia. This completed project is in Ilocos Norte in Luzon, the Philippines. At only three minutes long its well worth watching.
There are a few downsides of wind power to consider though:
Overall, wind power is a worthwhile part of the global energy mix. It’ll be suited more to some places than others, just like all the other alternatives.
There are also likely to be ways to avoid bird deaths or reduce the noise factors. We must remember that technology can solve problems with existing energy choices, as well as help us harness new ones.
