FAQs about Wind Power

9. What are the advantages and disadvantages of wind energy?

Advantages: it is an inexhaustible, clean and efficient energy. It is going in the right direction in the fight against climate change. Contributes to sustainable development. It is one of the cheapest sources. It generates five times more jobs than the oil industry and many indirect jobs. There are mini wind turbines or urban wind turbines to be placed in homes, haciendas and remote places where electrical networks do not reach.

Disadvantages: At times when the wind ceases there is no electricity production, which is resolved with the compensation of electricity between several parks.
