Renewable energy is critical for a clean and green future. Global demand for power has already exceeded supply. Governments and individuals are realizing that they need to take steps to save power as well as encourage the use of renewable energy sources.
Oil, natural gas and coal produced from fossil fuels are gradually running out and their production has unleashed devastating effects on the environment that'll take years to correct. And correct it we must for the sake of our children and grandchildren … In this scenario, harnessing the power of wind is a viable and efficient solution that can either replace or supplement traditional energy solutions in our homes.
Wind power is a gentle but effective way of cutting electricity bills, dealing with power outages while addressing urgent environmental concerns. Non-polluting wind power systems can easily be installed in your backyard or on your rooftop. The benefits of generating electricity using the wind are numerous:
Free of cost
Doesn't emit any harmful pollutants such as carbon dioxide
Plenty in supply
Reduces your electricity bills as well as your carbon footprint
After paying for the installation you'll recover the amount you spent by saving on electricity
Complements a solar power system by capturing the wind in winter when sunlight is less
Store excess electricity in batteries that can be put into use when there's no wind
It's quite simple to generate your own electricity at home by using small windmills or turbines. They're not difficult to install, neither are they expensive. What these turbines do is they use blades to catch the wind, so whenever the wind blows, these blades move and drive the turbine.
This leads to the production of electricity. As you can imagine, the stronger the wind, the more electricity! These small windmills are capable of generating enough electricity to power your lights and electrical appliances at home.
Using wind power could save you thousands of dollars a year on electricity bills. Plus, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you've done something for the environment!
