How Wind Energy Works

In certain regions, winds can steadily blow fast enough to be harnessed as energy. High wind areas are found with high altitudes and open areas where the wind cannot be blocked, such as hilltops and open plains. Turbines are built to collect the kinetic energy from the wind and can have blades as long as 100 feet. As wind blows, it turns the blades of the turbine which are connected to an electric generator. As the turbine spins, the generator produces electricity.
