- Wind farm could obstruct human activities if placed in low altitudes - mitigation: erect turbines in high altitudes. - Birds and other flying objects get killed if they fly past a wind turbine farm; birds migratory path are altered in the long run. This can possibly be mitigated by studying the pattern and path of birds' migration prior to erecting a wind farm. - Turbines can only operate within a range of wind speed not too low and slow and not too fast; usually between 4 metres/second and 25 metres/s and turbines are designed accordingly. If wind speed is slower than 4 m/s, then there is no supply of energy (if you are solely dependent on wind. If wind speed is faster than 25 m/s, the turbine is designed to cut off to prevent damages (meaning no energy for you) - mitigation: energy storage (e.g. in batteries) during times of optimum wind flow will help at the "too slow" and "too fast" winddy periods.
