WIND ENERGY

What is wind energy: Wind is cause by convection currents in the earth's atmosphere, driven by heat energy by the sun. This means as long as the sun shines,there will be wind. Wind produces only a small amount of the electricity this country uses. One of the reasons wind farms don't produce more electricity is that they can only run when the wind is blowing at a certain speed. People only worry about the birds and bats that may get injured
