Wind energy for Southern Oregon.
Are you looking to offset electricity costs with clean renewable wind power? Alternative Energy Systems installs wind turbines, which produce electrical power when the wind blows. Wind turbines look like aircraft propeller blades. The wind turns the blades, which spin a shaft, which connects to a generator and makes electricity. Careful selection of both the wind turbine and the installation site are the keys to justify the cost of installation and maintenance.
What is wind energy?
Wind energy comes from the sun. Solar radiation heats the surface of earth unevenly, which causes hot air to rise and cool air to fill the void. This movement is wind energy. Wind flow patterns are influenced by the landscape, bodies of water, and vegetation. The wind flow, when “harvested” by modern wind turbines, can be used to generate electricity.
How can we generate electricity with wind energy?
The wind is converted into mechanical energy by the rotation of the turbine’s blades. This rotation is converted into electricity by a generator inside the hub of the machine.
