Wind farms’ climate impact recorded for first time

83706099_8489ba42-f91b-413b-9215-2017b2b24ae7In the first study of its kind, scientists have been able to measure the climatic effect of a wind farm on the local environment. The team said its experiment showed that there was a very slight warming at ground level and that it was localised to within a wind farm’s perimeter. Data suggested the operation of onshore wind farms did not have an adverse ecological effect, the group added.

The findings have been published in the journal Environmental Research Letters.
