All About Wind Energy

Wind Energy Info and Service


What is Wind Energy?

Wind Energy (or wind power) is the use of wind to provide mechanical power through wind turbines to turn electric generators for electrical power.

How wind turbines work?

Wind turns the propeller-like blades of a turbine around a rotor, which spins a generator, which creates electricity. It in short, wind turbines use wind to make 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 ulities or power operators will send the electricity to where people need it.

What is a wind farm?

A wind farm (or wind park), also called a wind power station or wind power plant, is a group of turbines in the same location, used to produce electricity.
