Wind Turbine Energy, Static Electricity And Solar Energy Essay
When I originally considered my focus for this assignment I decided to explore the efficiency of: wind turbine energy, static electricity and solar energy. My final research led me back turbine energy that is produced specifically from the use of ocean currents or tidal energy. I found this technology to be more efficient and cleaner than all of the alternatives I investigated.
The use of water as a source of energy is nothing new. It has been around for many centuries; the flow of water through wind mills in early Rome was used to grind wheat into flour. Rivers and man-made dams have been a source of energy for years. Hoover Dam in Las Vegas, for example, uses water that passes through the turbines to generate hydroelectric power that saves the residents of California, Arizona and Nevada money on their electric bills. The energy generated by the Hoover Dam is enough to power 500,000 houses every year (Hoover).
