Transcript

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