Disadvantage of Horizontal Wind Turbine

For the disadvantages of the HAWT, most turbines are not efficient when it is installed close to the ground where there isn’t much wind. Also, the tall tower and long blades are very expensive and difficult to transport and install. Another disadvantage of HAWT is that it is difficult to perform repairing operations to HAWT because the gearbox, generator and the rotor are all placed at the top of the tower.


  1. I heard that the HAWT must be installed at least 200m away from any building, is that true?
