Unknown effectiveness (limited evidence)

Paint wind turbines to increase their visibility

1A single, controlled ex situ experiment found that thick black stripes running across a wind turbine’s blades made them more conspicuous to an American kestrel Falco sparverius than control (unpatterned) blades. Other designs were less visible or indistinguishable from controls. Assessment: unknown effectiveness — limited evidence (effectiveness 16 %; certainty 10 %; harms 0 %).
