Transcript of "Wind energy[1]"

  1. 1. Wind Energy<br />-PaytnBlanke<br />
  2. 2. What it is<br />It’s a wind turbine.<br />It spins when it’s windy.<br />And creates electricity.<br />Wind Turbine <br />
  3. 3. WIND BLOWS<br />
  4. 4. SPINS THE TURBINE<br />
  5. 5. WHICH SPINS THE GENERATOR<br />
  6. 6. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power.<br />This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (like grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity.<br />We use most turbines for electricity.<br />
  7. 7.
  8. 8. Wind Farms<br />
  9. 9. We have a wind farm in Fon Du Lac, WI<br />
  10. 10. $$PRICE$$<br /><ul><li>Around $1,000,000 for the wind turbine
  11. 11. And $200,000-$500,000 for installation.</li></li></ul><li>Problems<br />Sometimes the wind might not be strong enough to turn the turbine,<br />Sometimes there might not even be any wind at all.<br />If a part would break it would cost a lot of money<br />The Wind Turbines cost a lot of money in general.<br />
  12. 12. Solutions<br />The US should pay to have a wind farm in every state.<br />Don’t rely on JUST the turbines for energy.<br />There’s nothing you can really do about the no wind thing<br />
