The environmental impacts due to technology application have been an interesting and environmentally issue for researcher and engineers worldwide. The environmental impact of wind power when compared to the environmental impacts of fossil fuels, is relatively minor. Compared with other low carbon power sources, wind turbines have some of the lowest global warming potential per unit of electrical energy generated. Wind energy, commonly recognized to be a clean and environmentally friendly renewable energy resources that can reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, has developed rapidly in recent years. Its mature technology and comparatively low cost make it promising as an important primary energy source in the future. However, there are potential environmental impacts due to the installation and operation of the wind turbines that cannot be ignored. The impacts of the wind energy on the environment are important to be studied before any wind firm construction or a decision is made. Positive and negative impacts of wind energy have been broadly explained as well as. It has been found that this source of energy will reduce environmental pollution and water consumption. However, it has noise pollution, visual interference and negative impacts on wildlife.
