ABSTRACT
The topic of this article is comparison of two considered variants of the solution of wind power plants construction in terms of the environmental impact. The goal is to choose
a concrete variant of the construction which brings a lower impact on the environment and health of the population. Especially in terms of the noise, landscape, fauna and flora impact. The article also deals with concrete selected impacts especially of tall wind power plants in near proximity of inhabited locations.
The first option includes the construction of number 8 wind turbines with a total size of 175 m, then the second six wind turbines with a total size of 196 m, each with power of 3.3 MW. The study has been prepared in accordance with Annex No. 3 of the Act no. 100/2001 Coll. on the assessment of environmental impact, as amended, known EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment). The results of the study will therefore be deciding which of the possible solutions planned construction of a wind park will have the least impact on the environment, through noise studies, expertise, faunistic, floristic observation and evaluation of health risks and impacts on public health.
