Wind Turbine

Wind Turbine

Wind turbines use blades to collect the wind’s kinetic energy. The blades are connected to a drive shaft that rotates an electric generator to make electricity. Similar to solar panels, wind turbines do not produce air pollutants therefore they have a small impact on the environment. However, wind fluctuates; turbines are relatively large in size causing a visual impact on landscaping and are expensive.

The Wind Turbine experienced maintenance issues from April 6th 2010 until August 13th 2010. To see the Wind Turbine maintenance logs Click Here
