    Would you try to stop a company from building a wind farm in your area?

    would it bother you because of the look of it or any other reason ?

    The only thing I would be worried about is that it's messing with an animals habitat or a birds migration pattern.

    We need renewable sources of energy and I would welcome such a thing.

    I agree with Garrett's response.  I feel that the individual wind devices need to have a protective grill over them where birds are not caught in the blades. 

    If I found out that these devices were harming birds or wildlife, you bet-- I'd fight this from developing near my area. 

    If they found a way to protect the blades where birds are not effected in any way, I think that they could be a great concept for energy.

    I don't think I would. But it's not terribly likely that anyone would try to build one here. Not terribly windy overall.

    I've read that they used to be noisey but even if they weren't I wouldn't want them because they are not needed.

    As long as it benefits the community overall, I'd love to see more wind farms.

    A wind farm? You can grow wind? No, really, a wind farm is a lot different than the single pole in your neighbor's yard. They only are economically feasible in very select areas of the country where winds blow constantly. They must be in clear areas, not residential zones, because the roofs disrupt the wind flow, introducing turbulence and the turbulence harms the wind mill. It's not likely a developer is going to put one near your house. The technology needs tax breaks or grants to be feasible in many locations, and for that reason I oppose farms, unless they can stand on their own. For another, birds really don't enjoy being chopped and diced.
