Lessening our dependence on fossil fuels is critical to the health of all living things and one can’t entirely disregard the political and economic benefits of being adequately energy independent. Wind energy will definitely play a part in achieving that independence and lessening our impact on the environment.

Harvesting Wind Power on Different Levels

User Rating:  / 0

Large windmills are turning up in many places and their size makes them more acceptable in rural spaces or on offshore power islands. However, there are some city dwellers that may be missing out on the ability to use the wind for their own benefit. Solar collectors are one method that is being used to produce electricity in the city-scapes, but since the wind is the largest natural resource available, turbines are being developed that fit better into the urban landscapes.

Wind, the perfect resource. It keeps your kite afloat, powers your sailboat, helps trees shed those old leaves, brings in the rain, or blows the clouds away. What could make wind more useful to us than that? Well, it could help power our homes. That would be pretty handy, especially since it is fairly abundant and completely free. Would you like to get some free electricity from the wind? Consider building your own wind turbine

A stand alone wind turbine(SAWT) is one that is not hooked up to a power grid at all, but can be hooked up to a reactive power grid to produce power for outlying and rural areas. For many people, there is only one type of energy available, holding them prisoner to the prices that they are forced to pay if they want to have lights and other appliances in their homes.
