It seems the whole world wants to go green right now or at least this is the message that our politicians and governments are promoting, but it is really as simple as this. Are there opportunities for the average man on the street to truly go green?
There are many choices to consider for the budding green energy hunter. Water power, wind power or sun power to name just a few?
But you can be sure there will be plenty more options to choose from as time goes by. All of these sources of energy are becomming more efficient and cost effective and one of the leading proponents of this is wind turbine technoloogy.
Throughout history, wind has been used for certain things for example to carry large ships across the ocean or to power the huge sails on windmills that rotated to grind corn and other grains for our foods.
Go here to find out more about how wind turbine technology can help to power our world
Ever wondered if it was possible to measure the power of the wind? Well it is and I'll show you how.
I've just added a really good page here all about measuring the power of the wind, it's entitled wind turbine efficiency and discusses ways in which it is possible to measure the strength and power of the wind.
By measuring the power of the wind it is then easy to determine whether a wind turbine is being efficient in its present position or not. Also whether there is enough wind over a period of time to make having more turbines in that same area a real benefit.
I show you a quick equation that can be used to calculate these facts .
Here's the page - wind turbine efficiency
