Aspen

  1. 1. Pros: wind is free, it can be captured efficiently, does not cause green house gases or other pollutants only takes up a small plot of land (one), Remote areas that are not connected to the electricity power grid can use wind turbines to produce their own supply new sources of income can save money on electric bills Cons: can be damaged in thunderstorms because of their tall, thin shape blades of wind turbines can hit birds who attempt to fly between them wind turbines create noise from the turning of the blades cause interference from nearby TV reception the wind resource needs to be over 10mph for long periods of time Facts The conversion of wind energy in to a useful form of energy In 2008, wind power produced about 1.5% of world wide electricity usage Wind energy, a natural resource of the world and a useful source of electricity? Yes that’s right wind, the invisible thing that we all fell on a nice summers day. This source is being converted into electricity for our everyday use, and the popularity of this idea is growing. Wind farms are popping all over the world, Aus- tralia, Canada, China, even the US. The thought of using wind as energy source is one of the best ideas for electricity, it is natural, it is resourceful, and wind is every were around the world. And the concept for col- lecting wind is simple…… use a wind turbine (shown in the picture above). A wind turbine is just a advanced version of a wind mill, the wind moves the blades and when the blades move the turbine in the mill generate electricity to use in everyday life. Don’t be against wind power be with wind power.
