WIND POWER EXPLAINED
Wind turbines operate on a simple principle.
The energy in the wind turns two, three or propeller-like blades around a rotor.
The rotor is connected to the main shaft, which spins a generator to create electricity.
Wind turbines are mounted on a tower to capture the most energy at 4 meters or more
above ground so they can take advantage of faster and less turbulent wind.
Wind turbines produce electricity which when feed to the solar controller, is added
to the electrical energy produced by the solar panels to power the home or building.
Due to the visual and noise pollution of wind turbines they are generally only used
in Rural areas.
