  General benefits of wind power  
  Wind is a clean and renewable source
of energy. It can help to replace other sources of energy that damage the environment and contribute to climate change. The Huron Wind farm alone offsets the emission of approximately 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and more than 100 tonnes of acid gases every year.

Well-maintained wind turbines are extremely safe and normal agricultural activities can be carried out up to the turbine base. Turbines
can also be sited offshore in the sea and in lakes.

Wind turbines leave no legacy of pollution for future generations. If no longer required at a given location, they can be dismantled and removed, leaving no visible trace of their existence.

     
  Wind farms provide business opportunities and jobs in wind energy development, manufacturing, maintenance and operation. Wind farms can also provide a tourist venue. wind turbine
