Use of Wind Turbines?


Wind as a source of energy is not something new. However, nowadays, the type of energy that households are in need of is not one that will generally be used to grind wheat that have been harvested. Some of our needs today are different than those from the past. Today, we are less inclined to all be growing our own food. Electricity is needed however, to produce light, use computers and appliances for example. Nonetheless, wind energy could still be employed to electrify these objects we use or even produce large amount of electricity. In this article, aside from the other alternative sources of energy such as solar energy and Switch grass, the topic will be about wind generated energy.

Wind turbines have been used in some European countries with some success for several years. Due to the fact that throughout the world this form of energy has been employed,today there is more know how. In fact, surfing on the internet could lead to find a lot of information on the subject. Moreover, if a person decides to install a wind turbine in his/her house, this will not be a complete adventure because others have done so. Videos and books have been made around the subject of wind energy and they could help get more information.

Based on a reading, the United Kingdom has slashed its emission of carbon dioxide by more than a million per annum. Moreover, in the United Kingdom, electricity originating from wind turbines reached around one million people at the time. There, wind energy was seen as a promising energy source for the future.

Some advantages of wind turbines are that on one hand after amortizing the cost of installation, the energy produced will be free. Moreover, the energy produced does not lead to greenhouse gases. The example of the United Kingdom is a good one to illustrate that this form of energy could help reduce pollution. Another point is that Denmark was country that got more than 10 percent of its electricity from wind. Finally, in terms of maintenance, wind turbines do not require to be checked out everyday, which is another benefits for this source of electricity.

  • I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.

  • Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  • I’m really thrilled to discover this web page. I need to say thanks for your time spent on composing this fabulous piece of writing. I certainly appreciated just about every bit of it and I have you bookmarked read new articles or blog posts on your site.

    • Very much dependent on the scpfieic engineering of the wind turbine. You are losing energy to friction, so the mechanics of the device are very important. All of that is not a consideration for fossil fuels becase the earth has done most of the conversion already by using gravity (i.e., pressure), which is basically infinitely available. If you are thinking not in terms of energy cost, but financail cost, then you really need to think about the supply chain. A single high-effeicncy wind turbine might cost $5MM to build, but there is operational cost, land cost, distribution and storage costs. All of that is baked into the end user price of a gallon of processed fossil fuels. I don’t know the scpfieic numbers, but I do know that none of the wind farms would be profitable without the government subsidies that they are getting ATM.That chart of 1996 California date someone posted showing that wind is the lowest cost seems highly suspect to me at a minimum it is looking at regulatory compliance costs for things like nuclear and fossil feuls, not just the cost of generating and delivering the energy. That is the problem with data “sound bites”, they are a little to easy to quote without thinking about them.

      • Hello Owen, If Industrial wind turbines were only green. Then if they fololwed Europe’s lead and placed them 1.5-2 kms from family homes it might be worth it. However, wind turbines have yet to stop or even slow down ANY emissions, ANYWHERE in the world! Conventional fossil fueled plants, (coal or gas) must constantly run using even more fuel, creating even more emissions to back up the wind turbines when the wind doesn’t blow! The paltry contribution made by the intermittent wind turbines is hardly worth the obscene expense. The feed in tariffs have made Ontario ripe to be exploited by the turbine companies that have worn out their welcome in Europe! 410 coalitions from 27 European countries have marched in protest. People all over the world have reported the same symptoms and illness from exposure to constant thumping audible noise and inaudible low frequency noise that invades the soft tissue of our bodies. Headaches, tinnitus, vertigo, rapid heartbeat and sleep deprivation. Our MOE has admitted that we do not have the technology to measure Low frequency noise, yet they continue to rubber stamp approvals. Not one request across Ontario for an independent third party study was granted to balance the bias self study screening report done by the wind turbine companies!!! This is shocking. There are abandoned homes in every county that wind turbines have gone up. Can you imagine paying your mortgage AND paying rent for an apartment in town so that you can get some sleep? Can you imagine that you list your home for sale and no one will buy it? Your health and your hard earned equity have been deemed expendable by your own elected officials! Remember, these people are too sick to care about the view, they are not NIMBIES! The wind Bubble’ is about to burst as more countries in Europe decide they can no longer subsidize wind power. Reports conclude that for every 1 green job, 2.2 jobs are lost!Why are we allowing McGuinty to destroy Ontario? Most urban people that have gone to a wind farm and stood underneath a turbine say It was very quiet, what is all the fuss about? Of course the quietest place is directly underneath a turbine. By their very nature they project sound which amplifies over hilly terrain in the quiet countryside. When earthworms leave the vast area around the base and raptors and bats are killed, even frogs float up dead in ponds, what does that tell you. Wildlife flee the area and do not return. Cattle and sheep can not flee. Dairy cattle have aborted due to stray voltage from the turbines. What we have to ask ourselves is Is this worth putting our Grandchildren in debt for? Just so that our Premier can appear to be Green! When I went to business school we were taught to copy success not copy failure! Folks need to be educated about wind turbines and not from the sellers of wind turbines. Did we believe what the tobacco industry told us about cigarettes?
