    Wind power is also cleaner and more sustainable than a generator, making it the perfect complement to solar power to minimize impact on the environment. For turbines to be a viable solution, wind speeds must exceed the turbine’s start-up speed (typically + mph). This is the minimum speed required for the turbine to produce power.
