Another fascinating invention in the field of wind power is the WindTree. This is a turbine built for a far smaller endeavor than that of the previous design, but it addresses the persistent problem of aesthetic: many naysayers of wind energy cite turbines’ rather drab appearance for their resistance to the construction of more turbines, especially ones close to their home. This turbine, however, is closer in appearance to a tree, hence the name WindTree. With a white “trunk” for support and curved green “leaves” to catch the wind, it could also resemble a work of art. Its design is …Read More
Wind power in the United States is rapidly becoming a popular mode of producing energy thanks to its renewable nature and economic incentive. Though wind turbines commonly require a not-so-modest amount of real estate to implement on a meaningful level, once built they can provide numerous benefits.
Of course the most apparent benefit to wind energy is the fact that it requires no fuel (in the traditional sense that disqualifies wind as “fuel”) and produces no waste. This translates to an exceedingly low level of maintenance that must be performed in order to obtain electricity. Wind power is essentially a …Read More
I am 21 years old and I have lived in Florida for my entire life – born & raised.
Check out our home page here to seel all my articles.
You can call me a real Floridian, and there is just something I love about the Florida landscape. I call Pompano Beach Home.
I have lived on the East side of town basically my entire life, enjoying the beach as much as I possibly can (work permitting). Even on the calmest days the wind is blowing, gusting and pushing around. There is wind energy ALL around.
WHY ARE WE …Read More
So probably my favorite thing about wind energy, is it is always here! Yes, of course some place are much more windy than others and positioning a turbine in a very windy location is ideal. Living in South Florida, we see great wind blowing all of the time right on our coast line. IF we could figure out a way to harvest this and power millions of homes, why wouldn’t we?
I believe one solution is to require buildings on the coast line to install wind turbines on the roof tops of their building. They can use …Read More
Hey, how are you guys doing today? Welcome to my new blog called the Soaring Wind Energy. I just wanted to welcome everyone and let you know that this will be a great adventure about energy and any other related topics I deem fit or run across.
Anyways, check back tomorrow for more info!…
