Wind power is a clean and reliable source of energy that mankind has used for millennium. Wind has been used in everything from pumping water, to grinding grain on a farm, to propelling some of the large ancient ships that were at the heart of the world conquest done by countries like Great Britain and Spain. In our time mankind is once again looking to wind power as a way to help change and reshape the world as we know it.
Very few people can deny the fact that as a global society we need to make drastic changes when it comes to our energy production and usage. Our choices are to either reduce the amount of energy that we use every single day, or to come up with a renewable source of energy that will provide inexpensive energy in an efficient manner. And since it is unlikely that the energy hungry countries around the world will take serious steps to reduce their energy consumption, the more viable solution is to try to find a way to produce renewable energy. This is where wind energy enters the scene.
