  • Wind is an inexhaustible fuel source, meaning that it will never run out. This is because as long as the sun is shining, the wind will blow, and we can harness it to produce electrical energy.
  • Wind power gives off no pollution, which is a breath of fresh air. (LITERALLY!)<----------HA-HA-HA-HA.
  • Wind power is a great source of energy to supplement other renewable energy sources.
  • The price of wind power has decreased dramatically in the past ten years.
  • The amount of electricity that we have harnessed from wind has grown quite rapidly in recent years.
  • Wind turbines come in a variety of different sizes, so you can pick and choose the wind turbine that suits your needs.

  • Wind turbines do not take up a considerable amount of space. You can even use the land below the turbines for agriculture.
  • Wind power can be generated in exotic locations in which it is challenging to get an electrical power grid. Wind power may serve as the only means of electricity in said locations.

  • Wind turbines can be placed virtually anywhere; they can be placed on land and use the wind's currents, or placed in the water to use wind's currents and/or the tides' currents. Wind turbines are very adaptable, and have many uses.
