Wind Power Today
Wind Power today is much more advanced than early windmills. Newer wind turbines still have the problem of what to do when the wind isn't blowing. Smaller ones use diesel or electric generators or have a battery to store energy they collect.
Why its a good source of energy
Wind power produces no air or water pollution. Wind is free, so once you build the turbine the costs are near to zero. Technology advancements and mass production are making wind power cheaper. Some governments also offer tax incentives. Experts predict that if the industry keeps climbing, one-third of the Earths electricity will be powered by wind power.
