Do wind turbines bother wildlife?

0

Wind turbines coexist peacefully with wildlife. Deer and cattle habitually graze under wind turbines, and sheep seek shelter around them. While birds tend to collide with man-made structures such as electrical power lines, masts, or buildings, they are very rarely affected directly by wind turbines.

Deer and cattle habitually graze under wind turbines, and sheep seek shelter around them. While birds tend to collide with structures such as electrical power lines, guy wires, masts, or buildings, they are very rarely affected directly by wind turbines. Wind’s overall impact on birds is low compared with other human-related sources of avian mortality, such as hunters, house cats, buildings, and autos. The wind industry is working with environmental groups, federal and state regulators, and other interested parties to develop methods of measuring and mitigating wind energy’s effect on birds.

Wind turbines coexist peacefully with wildlife. Deer and cattle habitually graze under wind turbines and seek shelter around them. The new style of wind turbines we use is much friendlier to birds than the models used even 10 years ago. The blades on our turbines rotate more slowly than the older-style turbines and are, therefore, much easier for birds to avoid.

Wind farms’ overall impact on birds is low compared with other human-related sources of bird deaths, such as hunting, house cats, buildings, and automobiles. At Valkyrie Energy we conduct extensive wildlife studies before, during, and after projects are built. We work with environmental groups, federal and state regulators, and other interested parties to ensure we are responsible environmental stewards.
