Did You Know That...
A recent study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison calculated the average energy payback of Midwestern wind farms to be between 20 and 40 times as much energy as they consume (depending on the average wind speeds at the site), while nuclear power plants and coal plants generate only about 16 and 11 times as much.
Wind turbines are also highly efficient in a larger sense: they generate electricity from a natural, renewable resource, without any hidden social or environmental costs – there is no need to mine for fuel or transport it, no global warming pollutants created, and no need to store, treat, or dispose of wastes.
In connection with the special transport to be passing through the town of Vladimirovac, on November 16, 2017, the WEBG organized the presentation for the citizens of Vladimirovac. The presentation was held at the premises of the” Prvi maj” Elementary School by Mr. Aleksandar Anđić, the WEBG representative. The representatives of the General Electric Co., Messrs. Dušan Ilić and Nemanja Milovanović, as well as Mr. Aleksandar Šotić from the company supervising the construction of Čibuk 1 Wind park, were also present on this meeting.
