Green Power: The electricity produced from wind power is said to be “clean” because its production produces no pollution or greenhouse gases. As both health and environmental concerns are on the rise, clean energy sources are a growing demand. Sustainable: Wind is a renewable energy resource is inexhaustible and requires no “fuel” besides the wind that blows across the earth. This infinite energy supply is a security that many users view as a stable investment in our energy economy as well as in our children’s’ future.
Environmental Advantages of Wind Energy Most people are aware that burning coal releases harmful particulate emissions that cause breathing problems and asthma, and that it releases sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides, which cause acid rain. Coal is also one of the primary contributors of the carbon dioxide that causes global warming and mercury contamination of our lakes and fish.
Natural gas is a better option than coal, but it still produces considerable air pollution and contributes to global warming. Nuclear energy produces no particulate emissions, but it creates dangerous radioactive wastes which will require thousands of years of careful storage. All three sources–coal, gas, and nuclear power–are limited fuels. Today, they compose the bulk of our electric generation sources. Wind, on the other hand, is a completely renewable fuel source. As long as the sun shines, the winds will blow
Source of Wind Energy
Wind energy, like most terrestrial energy sources, comes from solar energy

which is wind
A wind turbine is a rotary device that extracts energy from the wind. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as for pumping water, cutting lumber or grinding stones, the machine is called a windmill If the mechanical energy is instead converted to electricity, the machine is called a wind generator, wind turbine, wind turbine generator (WTG), wind power unit (WPU), wind energy converter (WEC).Wind turbines are used to generate electricity from the kinetic power of the wind.it had 2 configuration
