  • 1. Benefits of Using <br />WIND POWER<br />
  • 2. WIND TURBINES<br />
  • 3. is it a CURSE???<br />
  • 4. Or a GIFT ???<br />
  • 5. In this day and age, the world needs to look at the different natural energy sources available to us.<br />
  • 6. With all the talk of Carbon Footprints,<br />Global Warming &amp; <br /> Green Living<br />
  • 7. People are thinking more and more about ALTERNATIVE ENERGY options.<br />
  • 8. One of those options isWIND POWER<br />
  • 9. Many of us know that it is possible to harness the wind’s energy for the production of electricity<br />
  • 10. BUT…<br /> Only few actually realize just how many benefits can be gained from using this method.<br />
  • 11. Here are some …<br />Benefits of Using WIND POWER<br />
  • 12. # 1<br />Wind energy is ECONOMICALLYCOMPETITIVE<br />
  • 13. With today’s rising coal and gas prices,<br />
  • 14. WIND PLANTS compete favorably against any electricity generation source.<br />
  • 15. And because WIND ENERGY’s “fuel” is FREE<br />
  • 16. It reduces the risk associated with volatile fossil fuel prices.<br />
  • 17. # 2<br />Wind Energy is a valuable CROP of the FUTURE<br />
  • 18. Wind Energy can provide new sources of income in rural areas,<br />
  • 19. As well as jobs for people who set up and maintain wind turbines or manage wind farms.<br />
  • 20. Wind turbines are compatible with rural land uses.<br />
  • 21. Since Wind Turbines can only occupy small plot of land,<br />
  • 22. The area below can still be used for agricultural purposes.<br />
  • 23. # 3<br />Wind Turbines don’t consume water unlike most other electricity generation sources do<br />
  • 24. Conventional plants generating power from fossil and nuclear fuels use<br />large amounts of <br />water for cooling<br />
  • 25. WIND TURBINES<br />Do not use water.<br />
  • 26. That make WINDTURBINES<br />
  • 27. A GREAT CHOICE for Drought – Stricken <br />Regions<br />
  • 28. # 4<br />WIND ENERGY is <br />Inexhaustible &amp; Infinitely Renewable<br />
  • 29. Unlike conventional fossil fuels,<br />
  • 30. WIND ENERGYis RENEWABLE<br />
  • 31. An ABUNDANT ENERGY that will be available for future generations<br />
  • 32. # 5<br />WIND ENERGY is the <br />CLEANEST <br />SOURCE OF ENERGY<br />
  • 33. WIND POWER …<br />Is inherently one of the cleanest sources of power available. <br />
  • 34. This is the kind of energy that produces no emissions,<br />
  • 35. Which means it doesn’t contribute to …<br />
  • 36. Acid Rain and Snow<br />
  • 37. Acid Rain and Snow<br />Global Climate Change<br />
  • 38. Acid Rain and Snow<br />Global Climate Change<br />Smog &amp; Regional Haze<br />
  • 39. Mercury Contamination<br />
  • 40. Mercury Contamination<br />Water Withdrawal<br />
  • 41. And …<br />Some Other Related Health Effects<br />
  • 42. # 6<br />WIND ENERGY <br />can be used in a variety of applications<br />
  • 43. Small Wind Turbines,<br />alone or as part <br />of a hybrid system, can generate electricity to power…<br />
  • 44. Homes<br />
  • 45. Homes<br />Businesses<br />
  • 46. Homes<br />Businesses<br />Farms<br />
  • 47. Homes<br />Businesses<br />Farms<br />Ranches<br />
  • 48. Wind Energy <br />is perfect for remote applications <br />such as …<br />
  • 49. Powering Telecommunications Sites<br />
  • 50. Water Pumping<br />Powering Telecommunications Sites<br />
  • 51. Water Pumping<br />Powering Telecommunications Sites<br />Displacing Diesel Fuel in Villages<br />
  • 52. There you have it...<br />The Benefits of Using <br />WIND POWER<br />
  • 53. Because of those reasons listed above<br />
  • 54. And the fact that until now…<br />Wind Energy still has overwhelming support of the public<br />
  • 55. Along with concern over debilitating illnesses associated with air pollutants<br />
  • 56. Wind Energy still has overwhelming public support.<br />
  • 57. WIND ENERGY<br />truly is the fuel of TODAY and TOMORROW<br />
  • 58. Wind Energy still has overwhelming public support.<br />
