Why are wind turbines white? – IN 60 SECONDS

Why are wind turbines white? Did you ever take the time, to wonder about the white color of wind turbines? There's more to it than you might expect The white color is considered neutral and non-intrusive

It almost completely blends with a cloudy background when seen from below Seen from above, international aviation laws require large structures to be white to make them visible for pilots This law also requires wind farms, to use obstacle lighting for maximum effect On top of this the white paint is a layer of protection It protects the wind turbines from weather conditions to prevent rust and reflects the sun, which heats up the composite and steel if the turbine would be black the thermal energy of the sun would cause the structure to grow and deform But in the world of wind turbines it's not all black or white

For example the boat landing of offshore wind turbines, needs to be bright yellow And some onshore turbines use green stripes on the base to match the grass Apart from these details, wind turbines will remain largely white
