Abstract

Wind energy is an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels with a history dating back to 1887. The costs of wind turbines used to generate the electrical energy can be large but with progress that can be improved. The clean energy produced is much more affordable and has a more stable price than fossil fuels due to the constant availability of wind. Wind turbines are simple machines that use motion caused by wind to generate electrical energy. Many considerations go into where one can build these generators, such as weather, landscape, and accessibility. In addition to facts about the history, use, and benefits of wind turbines we will be producing a demonstration on how wind turbines work.
