HOW WIND MAKES TURBINES SPIN AND HOW TURBINES WORK

THE WIND SPINS THE BLADES AND THAT MAKES IT MECHANICAL ENERGY, AND THE GENERATOR CONVERTS THE MECHANICAL ENERGY INTO ELECTRICITY.THE CABLES CARRIE THE ELECTRICITY TO THE TRANSMISSION LINE.THE COMPUTER SYSTEM CONTROLS THE DIRECTION OF THE BLADES.SOURCE:NATIONAL EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT PROJECT.(PUBLIC DOMAIN)WIND ENERGY CAN BE CREATED DAY AND NIGHT.YOU CAN PUT IT ANY WHERE AS LONG AS THERE IS BLOWING AIR.THE SIZE DOESN'T MATER TO GENERATE ENERGY.SOMETHING BAD ABOUT WIND ENERGY IS IF THERE IS NO WIND THE TURBINE CAN'T GENERATE ELECTRICITY.
