What are they?
· Generators that are turned by the power of wind blowing past them
How do they work?
· Wind turns the blades
· Blades are attached to a rotor which spins a generator to produce electricity
· Produces power using a clean, renewable source
· Once it is set up, power generation is free
· Some areas do not have enough wind to justify wind turbines
· Intermittent power source
o Can be solved through use of batteries
· High initial installation costs
