  • Wind energy produces a clean source of electricity. This is true since wind is part of nature and does not emit any chemicals into the air that might contaminate our environment or will affect the health of people that surrounds it. Aside from the fact that, wind energy leads to a total independence from other expensive electrical resources. This is basically an excellent way in being your own producer of electricity and let you save some money. This presentation gets my nod.
