    • Benefits of Using
      WIND POWER
    • WIND TURBINES
    • is it a CURSE???
    • Or a GIFT ???
    • In this day and age, the world needs to look at the different natural energy sources available to us.
    • With all the talk of Carbon Footprints,
      Global Warming &
      Green Living
    • People are thinking more and more about ALTERNATIVE ENERGY options.
    • One of those options isWIND POWER
    • Many of us know that it is possible to harness the wind’s energy for the production of electricity
    • BUT…
      Only few actually realize just how many benefits can be gained from using this method.
    • Here are some …
      Benefits of Using WIND POWER
    • # 1
      Wind energy is ECONOMICALLYCOMPETITIVE
    • With today’s rising coal and gas prices,
    • WIND PLANTS compete favorably against any electricity generation source.
    • And because WIND ENERGY’s “fuel” is FREE
    • It reduces the risk associated with volatile fossil fuel prices.
    • # 2
      Wind Energy is a valuable CROP of the FUTURE
    • Wind Energy can provide new sources of income in rural areas,
    • As well as jobs for people who set up and maintain wind turbines or manage wind farms.
    • Wind turbines are compatible with rural land uses.
    • Since Wind Turbines can only occupy small plot of land,
    • The area below can still be used for agricultural purposes.
    • # 3
      Wind Turbines don’t consume water unlike most other electricity generation sources do
    • Conventional plants generating power from fossil and nuclear fuels use
      large amounts of
      water for cooling
    • WIND TURBINES
      Do not use water.
    • That make WINDTURBINES
    • A GREAT CHOICE for Drought – Stricken
      Regions
    • # 4
      WIND ENERGY is
      Inexhaustible & Infinitely Renewable
    • Unlike conventional fossil fuels,
    • WIND ENERGYis RENEWABLE
    • An ABUNDANT ENERGY that will be available for future generations
    • # 5
      WIND ENERGY is the
      CLEANEST
      SOURCE OF ENERGY
    • WIND POWER …
      Is inherently one of the cleanest sources of power available.
    • This is the kind of energy that produces no emissions,
    • Which means it doesn’t contribute to …
