It is being estimated by the experts across the world that by 2050 one third of the world’s electricity would be generated by wind power. This power generating source has many surprising aspects which everybody should know:
Use of wind power reduces Carbon dioxide content:
Use of wind energy reduces carbon dioxide production, and also, once constructed, uses no water for its generation and saves huge amounts of water. As per the report by National Renewable Energy Laboratory of US, every year 1MW of wind energy can reduce almost 2,600 tons of carbon dioxide production. The report also says that 1 MW of wind energy can save 1,293 million gallons of water!
The demand for Wind Energy is skyrocketing at an unbelievable rate:
The production of wind energy increased almost fourfold between 2000 and 2006 when the cost of fuel went up because of the unrest in oil producing areas of the world. Though production of wind energy involves a lot of investment to start with, it will surely reap rich benefits in the long run.
World’s Largest Wind Turbine:
Hawaii has the world’s largest wind turbine which has rotors as big as the length of a football field and stands 20- stories tall . One wind turbine can produce enough electricity to power up to 3000 homes.
The raw material of this power i.e wind is quite unpredictable. When there is no force in the wind, the blades of the turbine do not move and thus there is no generation of power unlike the other resources where one can estimate how much power will be generated in a given time. However, if a grid extends over a large area, the average production across the region is much more stable, and wind can be a more reliable source of energy.
Minimal Maintenance Cost:
Once the turbines have been built and installed, there is no major intermittent costs to take care of. No extra fuel is burned to make the wind turbines work.
