Extraordinary heating of earth because of burning of fossil fuels have compelled people around the world to generate power from wind. Wind is one of the forms of solar energy and it is created by uneven heating of our atmosphere by the sun, rotation of the earth and irregularities of the surface of the earth. Wind energy is such a form of energy which does not create any toxic emissions such as fossil fuels and give clean source of power. Wind power is popular and it is extensively used in countries like Spain, India, USA, Denmark and Germany. Wind energy is a great source of energy and has its own advantages.
Wind energy is itself a source of renewable energy which means that its production is not limited; it can be produced anytime again and again. Not like fossil fuels which can be expired at anytime in future years, wind energy has great potential and it can be used to produce free source of energy like solar and hydro. Wind energy is the most pure and cleanest form of renewable energy and it is used by many of the developed and developing nations across the globe to satisfy their need of electricity.
Decreases consumption of fossil fuels
Use of fossil fuels can be decreased to a great extent with the usage of wind energy if it is accepted and applied on a large scale in many of the countries of the world. Usage of wind energy can be a great alternative for the increasing demand of petroleum and gas products. It can also reduce our import of fossil fuels from other countries. Apart from these, it is also useful to reduce emissions of harmful greenhouse gases which are major sources of global warming.
Reduction in air and water pollution
Wind energy is such a source of pollution which does not spread pollution at all. The existence of wind energy will be till the time of existence of sun. It is not at all harmful to environment as it does not release any kind of toxic gases. Usually you can see wind turbines in the coastal areas or in such areas which open, plain and there are gaps in the mountainous area where you can find wind strong and steady. You have to choose a location which is ideal and gets are regular and constant flow of wind throughout the year. Reduction in pollution in air and water will also reduce the diseases and it will create healthy environment and atmosphere.
Wind turbines of today’s time are attractive, classy and modern looking. They don’t look like old times boring old plain chunky windmills which looks very boring on your land. You can get wind turbines in various types, sizes. Many people install wind turbines on their land and get electricity from that. Once installed it is very useful for reducing energy bills along with providing you lots of energy without pollution.
