Don’t get blown away:

Windturbine can offset all emissions from

its construction within 3-6 months and can run carbon free for the remainder of its 20 year lifetime.

–>It is because of this that wind farms offer carbon offset credits to companies who aim to achieve net-zero in the coming years.

Understanding Carbon offsets through impact insight 5:

A carbon credit is a permit that allows the company that holds it to emit a certain amount of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases (a carbon credit is equal to one ton of carbon dioxide). Companies that pollute can buy these credits to allow them to continue to pollute up to a certain limit.

***That limit is reduced periodically with the goal to incentivize companies to find innovative ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. More details here:
