  • question_answer Give two advantages of 'wind energy'. Mention four states of India having favourable conditions for the development of wind energy.

    Answer:

    The advantages of wind energy are:
    (i) The wind is free and with modern technology it can be captured efficiently.
    (ii) Once the wind turbine is built the energy it produces does not cause greenhouse gases or other pollutants.
    (iii) Although wind turbines can be very tall each takes up only a small plot of land.
    This means that the land below can still be used. This is especially the case in agricultural areas as farming can still continue.
    States having favourable conditions are:
    (i) Rajasthan
    (ii) Gujarat
    (iii) Maharashtra &
    (iv) Karnataka.
