Wind turbines extract energy from the wind by using the power of the wind to turn blades that drives a turbine. This power is fed into a generator that converts the energy into electrical energy which is used to run household appliances and lighting.
The electricity produced by wind power can also be sold directly back to the grid. You can obtain the feed in tariff and a payback within 4 to 5 years typically. Using a renewable energy can save you money and help reduce climate change.
