It's one of those things that seems to good to be true. But the only bad thing about them is when they stop working. Like when theres no sunlight or wind.

Wind turbines suffer from the NIMBY effect (Not In My Back Yard) Most people love the idea, few want them to be next to THEIR property.

Like said above. Cost. Windmills can't be put just anywhere due to local building codes and the availability of Wind. Some consider them to be unsightly. Solar panels are not highly efficient yet but there's new technology that will be on the market soon that will make them more efficient than current solar panels.

The biggest drawback to wind turbines is reliability. Because the wind is variable, it is necessary to have spinning reserves from other power stations ready to take up the load at a moment's notice when the wind dies down, so fuel is being burned without producing any power.

Loss of huge amounts of land required to make a decent amount of electricity. Huge costs. Wind mills kill lots of birds.

In Texas the wind is a poor power supply . At night when u need the lights the wind stops.

The biggest negative effect of today's silicon based photo-voltaic solar panels is they take enormous amounts of energy to manufacture (more than they will ever produce) hence actually increase your fossil fuel consumption.
