Wind energy reduces overall greenhouse gas emissions, helping to reduce the risks of climate change. A major benefit of wind energy is that it cuts pollution and provides cost effective, clean energy.
A recent study on South Australia, where currently over 20% of electricity is supplied via wind energy, concludes that the reduction in emissions is significant and has fallen by 18% in the last five years without a rise in wholesale prices. A study released by Windlab shows that the difference is wind energy. Please click here to read the full study.
