The power of the wind can help in saving us loads of fossil fuel energy and the planet itself. With the world demand for fuel energy on the rise, there is a slow shift towards green energy. Green Energy is the renewable energy that does not lead to environmental hazards like global warming and greenhouse effect. The renewable sources of energy include the wind, water and the earth.

The wind energy can be converted into electricity using a wind turbine. A wind turbine is rotated using the blowing wind, created by uneven heating of the earth surface. The blowing wind flows over the air foil blades of the turbine and drives the shaft connected to the generator. This leads to the starting up of the electric generator and production of electricity.

The wind energy industry is growing at the rate of 28% a year. If the wind power investment, the wind capacity will double in every three or four years. Being the cleanest and cheapest source of energy, wind energy has found many takers in recent times.
