    World's Largest Wind Farms World's Largest Wind Farms Presentation Transcript

    • World’s Largest
      WIND FARMS
    • Exploration and study of alternative and renewable sources of energy
    • Is vital to the survival of civilization
    • This is why SOLAR, HYDRO and WIND ENERGY
    • is at the top of many GREEN & ECONOMICAL ENERGY movements
