- Wind Power can be harnessed to be a renewable, non-polluting, NEVER-ending source of energy.
Think of a turbine working the opposite of a fan. A fan uses a small generator that pulls electricity to produce wind, whereas a wind turbine uses the wind blowing at the blades to make them turn and generate electricity.
- 1 TURBINE = 1,500 Kilowatts
- 1 KILOWATT = 10 Light bulbs
- The blades, made of fiberglass, wood, and carbon, turn at 14 revolutions per minute. They shut off automatically when winds exceed 45 mph as a safety precaution.
- Thomas Edison, America's most prolific inventor was an early advocate of using wind mills connected to electric generators to bring electricity to rural America. In 1911, Edison went so far as to draw up plans for windmills that would power as many as 6 homes! Although his scheme never took off, some of us are old enough to remember the country side dotted with windmills used by farmers to pump well water or power machinery. If Edison could see us now…
- Wind energy technology has come a long way. In 1996, the average wind turbine could power about 125 average American homes, and was as tall as a 12-story building. The average turbine installed in 2006 was twice as tall as the 1996 model. It was almost as tall as the Statue of Liberty (Turbine=275 ft. and Statue of Liberty=305ft.) and had a rotator large enough to sweep a football field. A 1.5 megawatt turbine can produce enough electricity to power almost 500 homes.
This might even seem small compared to the monstrous 3 to 5 megawatt machines being developed today that will power over 1,300 homes.
