Brittany Shelton Professor Munro Physical Geography March 14, 2008 Would Cleveland or adjacent Lake Erie make a good site for generated electricity? Windmills in Cleveland would be a perfect place to position a windmill farm. After comparing the pros and cons of windmill farms I’ve decided that the positive out weigh the negative perceptions of windmill placement.

Unformatted text preview: With the prevention of green house emissions it slows down the depletion of the ozone layer. There may be environmental problems allied with some wind plants. Windmills have to be placed where average wind speeds exceed 12 miles per hour are currently the best wind power plant sites. Noise can be heard in the surrounding area of the wind farms. Birds can occasionally get caught in the spinning blades when the wind begins to blow. Wind is intermittent and it does not always blow when electricity is needed. Overall wind energy would be a great idea in Cleveland. Wind energy is fueled by the wind, so it's a clean fuel source. Wind energy doesn't pollute the air like power plants that rely on combustion of fossil fuels, such as coal or natural gas. It helps slow the depletion in the ozone. There is an abundant supply of wind. It is a low priced renewable energy...
