A wind turbine (or System Wind Power Generation) is an integrated electric generator to the axis of a pinwheel and that converts wind energy into electricity. It is a device that has become popular quickly to be a source of renewable and clean energy. But wind power generation is still very small relative to global consumption of electricity. The use of wind turbines presents some benefits but also some environmental impacts: benefits: It does not emit toxic gases. It does not emit particulate matter in suspension. It does not generate radioactive waste. Does not contaminate the water. Reduces the burning of fossil fuels.
impacts: Collisions with birds, mainly in small equipment. Erosion can be caused in sandy soils, the turbulence caused by wind turbines. In the vicinity of wind farms is detected noise pollution due to the noise produced. Some also consider visual pollution; Water consumption – cleaning the blades, when the site does not have enough rain to make such naturally cleaning. footprint for installation.
An additional technical constraint is the fact that the wind turbines can be installed cost-effectively in constant wind areas;
