Wind energy or wind power is the use of wind turbines to generate electricity. Historically, it has been used in sails, windmills and windpumps. Wind power is a popular, sustainable, renewable energy source that has a much smaller impact on the environment than burning fossil fuels.
Renewable energy is a vital part of the effort to create a sustainable future. It doesn’t produce pollution or greenhouse gases, and it doesn’t use up finite resources like fossil fuels. Renewable energy comes from sources that are renewable, meaning they can be replaced or replenished. The most common renewable energy sources are solar, wind and hydro power.
