Wind energy

By: Maisyn Garland and Lauren Hatchett

Pros


~ Wind energy can't pollute the air.


~ The amount of energy turbines can create is 20x more than humans need


~ We would never run out of wind and there would be no power outages considering wind is always going to be around.


~ Operational costs of wind energy are very low and are getting lower each year.
