    Wind power is a good source of electricity but it also takes up lots of space just like solar power plants.`”‘

  2. i would prefer wind power over solar cells coz they do not waste a lot of area~*-

  3. wind power is just as good if not better than solar power. wind power also generates more power per unit area compared to solar*’:
