History of Wind Energy, affect our ongoing energy crisis?Types of Turbines, and Applications of Wind Energy


“Windmills have fascinated us for centuries and will continue to do so. Like campfires or falling water, they’re mesmerizing; indeed, entrancing.”

Paul Gipe, Wind Power for Home, Farm, & Business


Wind energy has been popular for a long time

The pilgrims arrived under the power of wind. Cape Cod was home to the first windmill in America. Wind helped fuel our country’s early economy.

Types of electricity generating windmills
Types of Electricity Generating Windmills in the early 1900’s

  • Small (10 kW)

  • Homes

  • Farms

  • Remote Applications

  • (e.g. water pumping, telecom sites, icemaking)

  • Intermediate

  • (10-250 kW)

  • Village Power

  • Hybrid Systems

  • Distributed Power

  • Large (250 kW - 2+MW)

  • Central Station Wind Farms

  • Distributed Power

Some Concerns about Wind deal with(that can be addressed with proper information)

  • Visual / Aesthetic

  • Property Values

  • Noise

  • Birds

  • Safety

  • Are benefits real?


Carnage
Carnage! deal with


Are the benefits real
Are the benefits real? deal with

  • Back up Power?

    • Turbines do not require any new back up generation or spinning reserves.

  • Emission reductions?

    • Wind energy is accepted on the grid before any other source when it is available, offsetting the need for more polluting sources. Each MWh of wind is one less MWh of electricity from a fossil fuel plant

  • Economics?

    • Wind provides long-term price stability and is competitive with today’s energy costs. Economic benefit is realized by whoever buys (and sells) the power.
