What is wind energy

Wind energy is when wind power grabs the natural wind in our atmosphere and changes it into mechanical energy and then electricity.Wind mostly comes from wind turbines you see on farmes or maybe somewhere else.Wind is produced from wind turbines that why they are called wind turbines.Wind energy is formed by changing wind currents into other forms of energy using wind turbines.Wind energy involves the rotation of the earth because of the heat capacity of the sun.

How wind energy works

Wind Energy is created using sources from wind turbines that operate on a principle and they create electricity by using the energy in the wind to turn two or three propeller like blades around a rotor.The rotor is connected to a main shaft that spins a generator to create electricity.At 100 feet or more above the ground ,they can take in more wind.Wind turbines can be used to produce electricity in our everday lives.
