Background Information Pertaining to Wind Farms
The most important factor to consider in the construction of a wind energy facility is the site's wind resource. A site must have a minimum annual average wind speed in the neighborhood of 11-13 mph to even be considered.
Local weather data available from airports and meteorological stations may provide some insight as to averages.
Concerns are arising as to the ecological effect on land and landscape. Also, what impact do wind farms have on the health of all living things?
