the capture and conversion of the wind's kinetic energy into electrical energy. Wind turbines first generate mechanical power which is converted to electrical power by means of a generator. Wind energy is actually a form of solar energy, because wind is the result of convection currents caused by uneven heating of the earth's surface.
Wind is free fuel and available in many places around the globe
Wind energy doesn't work everywhere and isn't available 24/7/365.
Wind, together with PV and battery hybrid systems, will form the basis of a new energy market place. It needs to be part of the plan.
