What is wind energy

What is Wind energy?

Wind energy is a clean renewable source of energy. Wind energy turns into electrical energy inside our homes and other buildings.


How does a wind turbine work

How does a wind turbine work?

Some of the parts of a wind turbine are Blades, generator, gear box, yaw motor, and more. All of these parts are important for a wind turbine. The way it works is the wind spins the blades on the wind turbine and the gears rotate. When the gears rotate they spin a generator inside the turbine. The other parts that we mentioned help the process work. That is how a wind turbine works.


Did you know

Did you know?

  • Did you know that one wind turbine can power 500 homes?

  • Did you know that large groups of windturbines are called wind farms?

  • Did you know windturbines have three blades that can move at the speed of 370 kmh (kilometers an hour)?

  • Did you know that wind energy is renewable and clean?
