    Wind Turbines Essay

    • 949 Words
    • 4 Pages

    With so much emphasis on investing into alternative energies, it’s worth taking a look at the financial feasibility of them. Can wind energy compete with oil in terms of profit? How much electricity do wind turbines produce and how much do they cost to produce it? How do wind turbines work? Electricity from wind turbines is produced when wind turbine blades are pushed by the wind. The moving blades are connected to a generator and when moved, the generator creates electricity. The electricity is transferred across power lines and distributed to homes. If there is not enough wind to supply the needed electrical power, a backup power plant provides the remaining necessary electricity. The average cost for industrial wind turbines is estimated…

    Wind energy has been utilized by people since 500 and 900 B.C., to help pump water and grind grain by the Persians. As different cultures harnessed the power wind had to offer, windmills spread from Persia to the surrounding areas of the Middle East. Food Production leaned on windmills extensively. In 5,000 B.C., wind power propelled boats along the Nile River. Wind power technology spread north to the European countries, where windmills helped drain lakes and marches in the Rhine River Delta.…

    Wind turbines, both single and arrayed, are installed in areas located onshore, near-shore, offshore and in urban areas where they are integrated with buildings. Onshore and offshore wind power industry is growing fast (Oh et al., 2013; Barthelmie et al. 2009; Lozano-Minguez et al., 2011; Hameed et al., 2011). Due to their enormous size and due to the fact that wind turbines may be subjected to extreme wind conditions during their lifetime, it is imperative that proper assessment of wind load…

    of energy. Wind is one of those forces. It is especially viable in areas that are flat. Wind energy is an up and coming form of renewable energy that will thrive as technology advances. Wind energy is produced by wind turbines. These turbines work kind of like a fan in reverse. Instead of have electricity turn the blades of the fan, wind turns the blades in order to produce electricity. The blades are connected to a shaft inside the turbine and when the wind turns blades, the blades turn the…

    Article 71: Wind Turbines have always been a threat to birds who get killed by the blades of these turbines and the writer tries to explain how appalling this situation is for the environment in this article. The writer highlights how the U.S. Fish and Wildlife is seeking a public comment on a permit proposed for Shiloh IV wind project that will allow a wind project to kill up to five golden eagles over a five-year period, despite their protected status. Another double standard the writer puts…
