|Arguments can be made for and against the economic, environmental and effectiveness of wind turbine power. Wind power cannot be guaranteed. When the huge turbine aren't operating on the wind they may be subsidized with a boost of natural gas power. Natural gas generators sit in idle status and will kick in when winds subside in order to provide electricity. |
Some regions or even pockets are consistently more windy than others. There seems to be lots of consideration now when building a huge wind farm for public utilities vs. individual business or residential installations.
