    The Case for Wind, in 10 Blade Points

    Wind power preserves a healthy environment

    Blade point #10

    Living a long, healthy life goes hand-in-hand withpreserving a clean and healthy environment. Wind turbine blades create energyby capturing the wind — a clean, renewable resource, that will never run out. Whenlooking at the entire life cycle of a wind turbine, the turbine quicklycontributes to a cleaner world, by avoiding air pollution and the environmentaldegradation associated with burning fossil fuels.

    Of course wind turbine manufacturing leaves a footprint,like any manufacturing process, and we continuously strive to become more sustainablethroughout our product’s life cycle. Currently it takes 3-6 months to recoupthe energy that goes into producing, operating and recycling a wind turbine afterits 20-25 year lifetime (GWEC). We are proud of our contribution to a cleanerworld, and know we can always do more to minimize our impact by developing evermore efficient and reliable blades.
