Since long time ago, wind energy has been applied to aid people on many daily life activities. Wind energy can be utilized in order to grind grain and even to pump water: that’s what windmills do. In this case, wind energy is used to get mechanical energy to execute such activities.

But when a windmill turns into a wind turbine, it can provide electricity to power our houses. So we speak of wind generators. Huge farm plants of wind turbines (also called wind power units or WPU) can bestow much power with which many houses can be supplied with the electricity they need. On the other hand, we can also make a simple wind turbine to provide our home with free, renewable and non-polluting power.

As we probably know, to get the different elements and hardware to create a solar energy system for our home is quite expensive. Not so with wind energy: the creation of a wind power generator is relatively cheap and not very difficult to implement either.

The convenience or not for introducing a wind energy system for our house or apartment is quite obvious: wind turbines should be set in places where the wind blows consistently. If this is not the case of our home or residence, it is better to go for another alternative energy system like a home solar system or a magnet-based generator. However, if you can set a wind turbine near your house in a place where wind blows quite consistently, that can be a very good option to, for instance, a photovoltaic energy system that requires quite expensive solar panels.

I keep on wondering why initiatives concerning the introduction of these clean, free and renewable energy sources are not more promoted by everyone. Nowadays, we go on not only using up the oil sources of our planet but also contaminating the environment with the by-products derived. There are surely some efforts in many countries and from different companies to implement clean and renewable energy systems in some cases. Nevertheless, all this is nearly nothing if we bear in mind how bad we are dealing with our planet and our fellow living creatures (animals and plants) by polluting and annihilating their habitats and environment, and hence our own habitat and environment too.

For example, why don’t we mass-produce electric cars only? Forty years after landing on the moon it is hardly believable that we do not possess the needed technology to produce electric cars better than the best conventional cars today. Moreover, if a large amount of wind farms were set up, the energy all those cars needed could be easily obtained… for free! Of course the firsthand investment to set up so many wind energy units would also be important, but at the long run the investment would compensate many times.

As it seems, we live in a kind of a crazy world where common sense is the less common of senses, as it is said… However, we can always do something for ourselves, for our planet and for every living creature. So, every effort we make to introduce and encourage the creation of renewable energy systems like a wind power electricity system, will be a good, convenient and honorable deed.
