Check Out Few Amazing Wind Energy Facts That You Didn't Know About!

Generation of power through renewable energy resources has increased in good numbers over the past. Wind power is one of them. There are various pros and cons of wind energy but generally, experts do give first preference to this form of energy. Now let's see few facts that you might not be aware of:

Low cost energy generation:

Wind is for free but the construction of big towers with large blades and turbines are considered in the annual cost. Anyway, engineers all around the world believe that wind energy is the best way to generate electricity at affordable rates. If the reports are to be believed, wind power is 48% cheaper than power produced through coal and gas.

A Single Turbine Can Power 200 Homes:

The wind tower which is almost 120 – 140 feet in height and has a single turbine can supply electricity to almost 200 homes. This is one of the most interesting facts of wind energy. The largest wind turbine which is almost 750 feet high can generate 8 MW (Mega Watts) of energy and can supply electricity to 3000 homes.

Denmark Stands First in Wind Power Generation:

If you are thinking that USA or Germany are leading in wind power generation, then you are wrong. It's Denmark that has the largest wind power capacity and uses the wind power up to great extent. The other countries in the list are Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, USA, etc.
