Abstract: 

Demand for energy is increasing day by day in our country and worldwide due to many factors, such as population growth, industrialization, technological progress, more people live in the city (Mann and Teilmann, 2013). From the perspective of our country, our energy production from domestic sources cannot meet the energy that we consume (Yüksel, 2010). In order to get to the level of the industrialized countries in the development process of our country, the need to increase energy production and energy consumption compared to the current situation (Acaroğlu, 2013). In developed countries, there have been made investments at a great rate in renewable energy sources, to meet the energy demand of electricity production and to minimize the damage to the environment (Kenisarina et al. 2006). Adding essence and affordable, environment- friendly alternative energy sources to our energy production policy, it is an inevitable necessity to reduce our dependence foreign countries (Yüksel and Kaygusuz, 2011). In addition, national and international legal and statutory contracts are also supportive of this orientation (Anonim1, 2016). It makes attractive alternative energy sources that they are unlimited, renewable and not cause environmental pollution. As a result of these developments in the energy sector in our country, a large number of theoretical and practical studies have been made on environmentally friendly energy sources (Akdağ and Güler 2010). Wind energy is the energy source that in the focus of this studies (İlkiliç, 2012). Wind energy stands out in terms of more economical, easy installation and operation of power plants when compared with other forms of energy (Güler, 2009). Researchers have done a lot of work for the regions where they thought it was the wind potential in sub-issues such as, cost, environmental impacts and site selection (Özgener, 2010). In our country, with increase of the support in the wind energy field of, increasing numbers of new wind power plants have been established every day without huge installed power capacities. In Turkey, annual production capacity of wind energy is 11 552 GWh at the end of 2015. The installed capacity of wind power plants in operation by the end of the year 2015 4.503 MW (Anonim2, 2016).

 

In this study it was analyzed and evaluated of the possible environmental impact of a wind energy power generation system with taking into account recent data that may be established in Sinop.
