Wing Power Information

Wing Power Information


The ability of the wind is an important renewable energy source in areas where wind is plentiful. Because the sun plays a critical role in the formation of wind flow, wind power is certainly a form of solar energy. Any description of solar energy should include wind power information. Like solar power, wind power is a green energy source that is a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. [Wind power plays no role|Wind power does not play a role] in green house gas emissions. It is a [clean|sterile], [readily|always] available and renewable power source.

According to 2009 wind power information from the World Wind Energy Association, about 1.5% of global electricity usage is generated by wind power.  The use of wind [power|energy] throughout the world is growing, with many European countries such as Denmark, Spain and Portugal using wind power for a [significant|meaningful|eloquent|forceful] portion of domestic energy requirements.   


How Wind Power Works 


Wind turbines are [used|made] to [harness|constrain|furnish|govern] the power of the wind.  A wind turbine has propeller blades alike those used by airplanes.  As the propellers turn, electricity is produced.  A large-scale wind farm consists of [many|a number of|abounding|bountiful|plentiful] wind turbines that are [connected|attached] to the electric power grid.  Smaller wind turbines can be used to [supply|deliver] power directly to [nearby|close] locations.  However, because wind is [intermittent|an alternative|irregular] in many [areas|regions|locations] it is not always [possible|accessible|achievable|conceivable] to use a small wind turbine as a [primary|main|dominant] power source.  When [constructing|making|assembling|creating|composing] a smaller turbine for wind power, information about wind [conditions|circumstances] in the local area should be taken into account.

Residential Wind Power 


Residential wind turbines are an eco-friendly [alternative|change of] energy source for [homes|residences] with large lots in rural areas with a 10mph average wind speed.  According to wind power information from the American Wind Energy Association, installing a residential wind turbine will [typically|usually] lower a home’s electricity bill by 50 to 90 percent.  For [residential|home] use, wind power is used [in conjunction|along side] with electricity from the power grid of the local utility.  A small-scale wind turbine is installed [near|by] the [home|residence] and energy is [converted|changed] into electricity that is used directly in the home.  When wind is [present|available] and electricity is being [generated|formed|produced|created], the amount of power purchased from the utility is [decreased|lowered].  When more electricity is produced than is needed by the home, it cannot be stored. However, many utilities will [buy|purchase] it back from the homeowner.


Wind turbines used by a home has an estimated life span of 20 years and requires very little maintenance.  An 80 to 120 foot tower is [required|demanded] for a [residential|home] wind turbine to [function|work] effectively and should be [included|added] with the turbine.  The return on investment for a [residential|home] wind power system is usually 6 to 15 years.  Due to the savings in utility bills that it offers, installing a wind power system is a good way to increase the value of a residence. 


When [considering|contemplating] installing a home energy system that [uses|consumes] wind power, information about utility company support should be [obtained|gathered].  More and more utility companies have offer programs to buy back surplus electricity from [home|residence] wind turbines.  The American Wind Energy Association reports that [residential|home] wind turbines are currently used by [homes|residences] in 47 of the 50 U.S. states.
