Wind 101: What is wind power?
Wind power captures the natural wind in our atmosphere and converts it into mechanical energy then electricity. People started using wind power centuries ago with windmills, which pumped water, ground grain, and did other work. Today’s wind turbine is a highly evolved version of a windmill. Modern wind turbines harness wind’s kinetic energy and convert it into electricity. Most wind turbines have three blades and sit atop a steel tubular tower, and they range in size from 80-foot-tall turbines that can power a single home to utility-scale turbines that power hundreds of homes. Learn more about the history of wind energy.
Wind is a type of renewable energy, and there are three major types of wind power.
Alternative Energy of America can provide you with all wind types of generation systems, including Kingspan Wind, the world’s #1 small wind turbine and a global leader in distributed energy, water and environmental management.
We agree with Kingspan Wind when they say: “We’re harnessing nature to work for you and for a better environment”.
The KW3 is the smallest turbine in the Kingspan Wind range. Ideally suited for remote access sites, small domestic properties, telecoms and off-grid applications.
Offering an unrivaled over 25-year track record, the KW3 is among the most sought after small wind turbines in the world.
The KW15 has been designed and rigorously tested to ensure simple, affordable and responsible energy generation for land owners, farmers, developers and community projects all over the world.
UK’s first small wind turbine independently certified to Class 1 Standards.
