vertical axis wind turbine

Vertical or Horizontal Wind Turbines, Which is better?
Choosing between a horizontal axis wind turbine (HAWT) and a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) depends on several factors. If efficiency, higher power output, and larger wind farms are the primary considerations, HAWTs are usually preferred. On the other hand, VAWTs offer advantages in terms of space requirements, adaptability to turbulent winds, quieter operation, and visual impact. Assessing the specific requirements of the installation site and weighing these factors will help make an informed decision for harnessing wind energy efficiently.
