Wind Power is Dilute ... require a huge land footprint.... needs a wide network of roads, transmission lines and turbines which degrades any area containing wind farms.
Wind Power is Unreliable ... also intermittent and hard to predict. ... large backup or storage systems are required. This adds to the capital and operating costs and increases the instability of the network.
Wind Power is Ugly, Noisy and Hazardous ... Wind farms are uniformly hated by neighbours and will not be willingly accepted without heavy compensation payments. Their noise, flicker, fire risk and disturbing effect on domestic and wild animals are well documented.
Wind Power is Expensive ... Its cost is far above all conventional methods of generating electricity. It requires a huge land footprint and needs a wide network of roads, transmission lines and turbines which degrades any area containing wind farms.Furthermore:
Wind Turbines kill [huge numbers of] Bats and Birds... and then some. So, by all means, force taxpayers to cough up even more subsidies for this boondoggle.
