What are the pros and cons of wind energy? - Green Mountain Energy Q&A

Question by MaryCheneysAccessory: What are the pros and cons of wind energy?
There are alot of wind farms going up in my area. The biggest con that I see from these generators is that they pollute the beauty of our mountain ridges here in Western Pennsylvania. Sure, I am all for energy independence, but I think we rush to solutions in this country. What are your thoughts?

We have those in Texas. I guess it depends on how close you live to them. At least they’re quiet ! We need to use solar energy too. Probably a lot less land needed to “capture” it. There are some windmills out around Galveston. They are actually pretty out there on the beach !
