Researchers have discovered that purple wind turbines may be less hazardous to bats and birds than wind turbines painted the current standard colors of white or light gray.

According to a report published in the European Journal of Wildlife Research, white, light gray and yellow are insect-luring colors and that can be trouble for insect-eating birds who fly too close to moving blades in pursuit of a meal. Purple attracts the fewest number of insects, therefore purple wind turbines would reduce the number of birds feeding near the dangerous turbine blades.
