Additionally, we can take steps to find places to put the turbines that minimize the impact on the local fauna, and in some instances, on a case by case basis, establish new habitats for them.

The answer is in smart deployment. If we put 1,000,000 wind turbines on a grid across the whole planet, we would make less electricity than putting them in clusters where conditions are most favorable. This describes how flying fauna might be impacted by modern wind turbine installations, and so adds one more factor to favorable conditions.

Another way to address this is to get the rotor tips higher off the ground.
