New Wind Energy FAQ

We talk to Vermonters nearly every day about clean energy — so we know that people have a lot of questions when it comes to renewables. So, VPIRG is taking the most common questions we’ve heard and putting all the answers in one place — and we’re starting with wind power.

We’ve answered questions like:

  • Is wind power going to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions?
  • Couldn’t we just use solar power to get to our renewable energy goals?
  • How loud are wind turbines?

Feel like you know all you need to about wind, but have questions about solar or efficiency? Well, stay tuned in the coming weeks we’ll be sharing separate FAQs on those as well.

We want to help answer the questions you’ve had, and help you educate your friends and neighbors about these important renewable energy sources. We hope you’ll take a look at these, which can be found here.

If you have questions that we don’t answer, or you’d like some more clarification, we’d like to hear from you! You can simply send an email to and share your thoughts.
