Wind Power

Wind power is extracted from air flow using wind turbines or sails to produce mechanical or electrical power. Windmills are used for their mechanical power, windpumps for water pumping, and sails to propel ships.

The effects on the environment are generally less problematic than those from other power sources.Large wind farms consist of thousands of individual wind turbines which are connected to the electric power transmission network.
