How this natural resource is formed and used

Wind is caused by the uneven heating of the earths surface by the sun, because the earths surface is made of different types of land and water, it also absorbs the Suns heat at different rates. Wind energy is mainly used by building wind turbine in grasslands across the world.


New technologies have decreased the cost of producing electricity from wind, and growth in wind power has been encouraged by government and industry incentives.

Most of the wind power plants in the world are located in Europe and in the United States where government programs have helped support wind power development.


The five states with the largest generation of electricity from wind in 2014 were,Texas,Iowa,California,Oklahoma,and Kansas
