wind energy by Alyssa Cope

A source that uses wind power to make electricity

Avantages :)

  • no emissions
  • affordable
  • relatively high output
  • little disruption of ecosystems

Disadvantages :(

  • extensive land use
  • output is proportional to wind speed
  • not feasible for all geographic locations
  • high initial investment/ongoing maintenance costs

facts

it is a renewable resource. In the US only about 4% of us use energy from wind. A wind farm is a large amount of land that turbines that move and generate energy. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines distributed over an extended area, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes.
