World’s Largest <br />WIND FARMS<br />
Exploration and study of alternative and renewable sources of energy<br />
Is vital to the survival of civilization<br />
This is why SOLAR, HYDRO and WIND ENERGY<br />
is at the top of many GREEN & ECONOMICAL ENERGY movements<br />
Many scientists believe that WIND ENERGY has huge potential to generate power<br />
and meet the energy needs of the entire HUMAN POPULATION<br />
That is why, today, thousands of ONSHORE & OFFSHOREWIND FARMS<br />
Can be seen in many countries around the globe <br />
