Are the chemicals used for to make wind turbines similar to those that are used in solar panels?

    No.  Solar panels require heavy metals (some toxic, such as cadmium) that must be treated to be purified, crystallized, and wafered, processes that require the use of toxins.  The reason for that is solar panels must be manufactured from materials that have high photovoltaic capabilities (release a lot of electrons when put in sunlight).  Wind turbines make electricity using a magnet to pull electrons along a wire, and thus can be manufactured without heavy metals and without the harmful treatment process.

    Wind turbines use neodymium-iron-boron magnets.
