Livestock ignores wind turbines and continues to graze as they did before wind turbines were installed.
Compared to the environmental impact of traditional energy sources, the environmental impact of wind energy is relatively minor. Wind energy consumes no fuel and emits no air pollution, unlike fossil fuel power sources. The energy consumed to manufacture and transport the materials used to build a wind power plant is equal to the new energy produced by the plant within a few months.
Fred. Olsen Renewables performs environmental impact studies to evaluate the impacts on animals, plants, and waterways to determine if a site is suitable. We select and design wind farms to minimize potential impacts and aim to ensure that our wind energy is environmentally friendly.
