Since long time ago, wind energy has been applied to aid people on many daily life activities. Wind energy can be used 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 supply electricity to power our houses. So we talk about wind generators. Big farm plants of wind turbines (also called wind power units or WPU) can provide a great amount of power with which many houses can be provided with the electricity they need. On the other hand, we can also make a simple wind turbine to provide our home with free, inexhaustible and non-polluting power.

While the purchase of all the elements we need to implement a solar energy system to get free electricity in our home is not especially inexpensive, an always more popular solution is to build oneself a DIY wind power generator.

The convenience or not for introducing a wind energy unit in our house or apartment is quite evident: wind turbines should be set in places where the wind blows consistently. If this is not the case of our place, it is better to go for another alternative energy system like a home solar system or a magnet-based generator. Nonetheless, 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 example, a photovoltaic energy system that requires expensive solar panels.

I always wonder why initiatives concerning the introduction of these clean, free and renewable energy resources are not more promoted by everyone. Today, we go on not only using up the oil resources of our planet but also contaminating our environment with the products derived. There are certainly some endeavors in several countries and from different companies to apply clean and non-polluting energy systems in some cases. However, all this is near to nothing if we take into account how bad we are dealing with our planet and our fellow living creatures (animals and plants) by polluting and decimating 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 we landed on the moon it is hardly believable that we do not have the required technology to fabricate electric cars that are better than the best conventional cars today. Besides, if a great amount of wind farms were set up, the energy all those cars needed could be easily gotten… for free! Of course the firsthand investment in order to implant so many wind energy units would also be significant, but then the investment would compensate many times.

As it seems, we live in a somehow 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 or encourage the creation of renewable energy systems like a wind power electricity system, will be a good, convenient and honorable deed.
