generateWind

The UK has some of the highest average wind speeds in Europe so it make sense to try and harness this wind power to generate electricity.

Wind is a free clean source of energy. We are now all used to seeing large scale wind turbines on our coast and in our countryside but wind can also be used to generate power in our homes.

There are three types of wind turbines that are normally used in domestic situations, Vertical mounted, horizontal mounted and building mounted turbines all harness wind power to generate electricity but all vary considerably in both size and output.
