How is Wind Energy created?
During the day, the air above the land heats up more quickly than the air over water. The warm air over the land expands and rises, and the heavier, cooler air rushes in to take its place, creating wind. At night, the winds are reversed because the air cools more rapidly over land than over water
During the day, the air above the land heats up more quickly than the air over water. The warm air over the land expands and rises, and the heavier, ooler air rushes in to take its place, creating wind.
Step by Step Process for Wind
1. Find out the Electricity and energy cost.
2. Determine site suitablity and wind resource.
3. Find out how much electricity you want your generator to produce.
4. Determine the cost of the system
5. Contract for installation.
Comparison to fossil fuels
Wind compares to fossil fuels in the fact that it is used for energy. It is a renewable resource unlike fossil fuels.
Pros and Cons
One of the pros to wind energy is that it can last forever A con is that it can be expensive to make a turbine.
Places that use this source
A place that uses this resource would be far away from civilization because the turbines are very loud.
Places where this source could be developed more In or very near to the ocean because it is usually windy at the beach
Argument for increasing this source This source should be used more because it is very effective
Personal use Some things that use wind for personal use are people that air dry their laundry.
History of wind and its technology
1940- wind turbines are being used.
1950- Wind turbines get shut down because of disuse.
1970- More research on wind turbines
1978- Different types of turbines are created.
