What is Wind Energy
Wind energy refers to the process of creating electricity using the wind, or air flows that occur naturally in the earth's atmosphere.
How wind turbines work?
wind turbines use wind to make electricity. Wind turns the propeller-like blades of a turbine around a rotor, which spins a generator, which creates electricity.
How wind energy gets to you?
The turbines in a wind farm are connected so the electricity they generate can travel from the wind farm to the power grid. Once wind energy is on the main power grid, electric utilities or power operators will send the electricity to where people need it. Smaller transmission lines, called distribution lines, collect electricity generated at the wind project and transport it to larger “network” transmission lines, where the electricity can travel across long distances to the locations where it is needed. Finally, smaller distribution lines deliver electricity directly to your town, home, or business.
What is a wind farm?
Wind farms are areas where many large wind turbines have been grouped together. They harvest the power of wind.
