Wind energy or wind power is extracted from air flow using wind turbines or sails to produce mechanical or electrical energy -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_power
Wind turbines don't always produce the same amount of electricity. Some times there is no electricity at all. Each wind turbines noise is the same as a family car going 70 miles per hour. When wind turbines are being manufactured some pollution produced.

A diagram of how a wind turbine works
Higher wind speeds mean more electricity, and wind turbines are getting taller to reach higher heights above ground level -http://energy.gov/articles/top-10-things-you-didnt-know-about-wind-power
