Definition of wind power: “wind turbines capturing kinetic energy from the wind to produce electricity.”
Similar to solar power, wind power conserves energy by taking the planet’s natural resources (in this instance, wind) to help generate household electricity. The wind creates this electricity through a large three propeller turbine that is attached to a rotor. The energy in the wind causes the propellers to spin which in turn activates the rotor. The rotor is connected to the main shaft, and when rotated, the generator creates electricity.
Pretty crazy stuff.
Now, I am sure you have seen these types of propellers as you drive through rural areas with lots of farmland. Maybe you didn’t know they were used to create energy or perhaps you did, regardless, they are not just for farms and vast acres of land. You can install one right in your backyard (at a smaller scale of course).
