Wind Energy Chronicles: Why Wind Energy Is Becoming Widespread

August 9th, 2013

Vermont is leading the country in wind energy in many ways from Burlington and the Northeast Kingdom down to Brattleboro and Bennington. Wind energy is increasing in popularity both in Vermont and throughout the country. One of the main reasons is because it is a simple and sustainable source of clean energy. Turbines will always spin and generate electricity because there will always be wind. Wind is not a resource that can be depleted.

Another reason why wind energy is becoming widespread is that the turbines and generators are quiet, compact and simple to understand.Additional information Read the rest of this entry »

Green Energy: How Wind Energy Is Worth It

June 4th, 2013

Renewable energy sources that are able to offer a more sustainable alternative to conventional fuel sources offer a number of significant ecological and economic benefits. Solar, wind and other power sources that can be harnessed without creating harmful emissions or doing further damage to the environment or natural world may offer the key to solving the current energy crisis. Learning more about the many advantages that more sustainable energy sources are able to offer can allow you to become Read the rest of this entry »

Investigating Wind Energy: How Does It Work?

March 30th, 2013

Wind energy is clean and renewable, and it is growing in popularity around the United States. The process of producing wind energy starts with a wind turbine, a machine that is responsible for converting kinetic energy from the wind into mechanical energy that is useful for generating electricity.

Wind is produced when there is low atmospheric pressure in an area, often due to the rising of warm air away from the earth. Air rushes into the Read the rest of this entry »

How to Encourage Widespread Wind Energy Adoption

November 20th, 2012

If renewable energy sources are going to make a lasting and substantial impact on the well-being of our environment, the infrastructure is going to have to take shape on a more widespread scale. Although Vermont’s Small-Scale Wind Energy Demonstration Program has made strides in improving the awareness of the benefits of wind energy, it can’t exist in its own microcosm. Eventually, more local and state governments are going to have to enact programs and incentives to drive the growth of infrastructure necessary to produce and distribute this type of clean energy.

If wind energy is to be adopted on a scale sufficient to truly contribute to the sustainability movement, two things must happen:

1) Federal, state and local governments will need to put more pressure on large electricity cooperatives and providers urging them to adopt cleaner forms of energy. Wind generation, in particular, has been a complementary if not completely experimental source at this point. Energy retailers, such as the one at http://www.texaselectricityproviders.com/champion-energy-texas/Texas/, deserve to be able to offer sustainable energy to customers who place an emphasis on green living. And the utilities that generate the energy should have incentives to adapt to this growing demand.

2) The general populace needs to be more vigorously informed of two important aspects of the argument for clean energy. First, that the current method of producing electricity is not sustainable on its current scale. Second, that wind energy – as well as other forms of clean energy – fills the void left by currently unsustainable and environmentally taxing practices.
If America is to have sustainable energy for the long term, governments, retailers and the general populace are going to have to get on board with encouraging the implementation of wind and clean energy-friendly infrastructure on a national scale.

Fossil Fuels vs. Wind Energy: Which Is Better

July 3rd, 2012

Fossil fuels have helped the economies of the world in the last 100 years. But now many governments and individuals are looking at alternative energy sources. One of many alternative energy sources being explored by many people is harnessing the wind for energy.

The biggest benefit of wind energy is the environmental impact that fossil fuels cause. Wind turbines, once installed and setup, do not produce CO2. Another huge benefit, is the cost. Wind energy is free. After the first few years Read the rest of this entry »
