Wind energy is a clean renewable source of energy. Wind energy turns into electrical energy inside our homes and other buildings.
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.
Renewable- A source of energy that can not run out by use.
Wind Turbine- a large machine that creates electricity by using the wind.
Generator- A device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Produce- To make
Green house gasses- carbon dioxide
-Wind turbines don’t create greenhouse gases.
-Wind turbines are very NOISY
-Lots of people find wind turbines ugly, and think they are a waste of time.
-Wind is not always blowing. If the wind is not blowing then the wind turbines do not produce any energy.
-Making a wind turbine is very expensive.
