Plowden, B. (1992). Wind Power and the Local Environment - No Free Lunches. Paper Presented at the 14th Annual Conference of the British Wind Energy Association, Nottingham, UK.
Abstract: 

Contrary to common perceptions, there is still no such thing as a 'free lunch', in environmental or any other terms. Wind power is no exception to this rule. Like all energy technologies, wind power generates real environmental costs which must be recognised in the policy process and in land-use planning. Mistakes made in the early days of wind power development could critically undermine public support for wind power and renewables in general.
