OFFSHORE First of all, wind speeds along the sea are extremely fast thanks to little or no obstructions to the wind.
OFFSHORE Second, it’s far away from land, making sure that no people or wildlife will be affected.
OFFSHORE The only disadvantage with setting up offshore wind farms is that they cost a lot more to develop than onshore wind farms.
Here are some examples of great places with wind turbines:
Pennsylvania The Casselman Wind Power Project is a wind farm that began commercial operation in 2007, located at Somerset County, Pennsylvania with 23 GE 1.5 MW Wind Turbines.
Denmark A highly efficient country, 20% of it is taking advantage on wind energy as their source of electricity.
India Presently, India generates 5% of its energy from wind power and this goes up every year. It is foreseen that India could go beyond other developing countries in terms of using the alternative energy sources.
Philippines These wind turbines are the first of its kind in the country, built along the shores of Bangui, Ilocos Norte . Its geographical feature where sea and land perfectly meet create very fast and strong winds.
Germany A total of 21,164 wind turbines with a capacity of 25,777 megawatts were installed in the country all in all by the year end of 2009.
