Wind is created by the sun’s uneven heating of the earth’s atmosphere and the rotation of the earth. Moving wind turns the blades and generator of a wind turbine which makes electricity. Turbines powered by wind energy require no fossil fuels and create no pollution or greenhouse gasses associated with global warming. Wind energy has been used for centuries for grinding grains, and pumping water. Depending on your wind resource, this natural clean energy can effectively reduce or eliminate your electric bill.
