Wind Energy Myths

One of the biggest reasons that Wind Generators are not as popular and widespread as they could be is that there are too many negative myths that exist about wind generators.  And these myths are far too prevalent.  Here are a few of the myths of wind generators, and the actual truth about them

 
 
Myth Wind Generators are too loud, often to the poing of being dangerous to people's hearing . Fact The truth is that today's wind generators are no louder than the normal background noise when you are home.  In fact, with many wind generators today, it is hard to tell the difference between the wind generator and a tree blowing in the wind.
Myth Wind Generators kiil far too many birds every year. Fact The truth behind this myth is that wind generators actually kill far less birds every year than windows, cars, and other flight obstructions.
Myth Wind Generators need very high wind speeds to be effective . Fact Today's wind generators need as little as 7mph winds to start generating electricity.  For them to be fully profitable it is recommened that you have wind speeds between 10 and 12mph, however

Myth My Neighbors will never allow me to install a wind generator. Fact Despite popular belief, when given the true facts about wind generators, neighbors, zoning boards, etc, are much less likely to be against the installation of a wind generator than you might think.
