Raising Visibility of Wind Turbines by Changing Color of a Single Blade Can Reduce Bird Strikes by 70%

published: 2020-09-08 18:30 | editor | category: News
Scientists working in the field of wind power have been working on ways to reduce incidences of birds and bats killed by wind turbines due to a direct collision or the effect of the extreme difference in air pressure. They have tried mounting a warning device at the center of the turbine or on each blade. The device emits a noise to scare off the approaching birds. They have also redesigned the layout of the wind farm to lower the chance of birds hitting the rotating blades. ...  more
