Wind Power News

Wind power is a form of renewable energy that has its advocates and its critics. Whatever side of the divide you fall into, the Wiser daily wind power email will keep you informed of the latest developments in the industry, as well as analysis and opinion. Electricity is generated by wind primarily through the installation of large turbines that spin when the wind is blowing. It is a renewable source of energy that is impossible to run out of, plus it causes less damage to the environment than fossil fuels. This all makes it a viable form of energy production. Critics point out that wind power is unreliable as the strength of the wind fluctuates, and many people don't like how wind turbines look on the landscape. But wind power is growing with increasing amounts of electricity in the US being produced in this way each year. So the debates are set to continue. And you can stay up-to-date with them all through the Wiser wind power news email. Registering is free so sign up today.
