WIND CUBE By amplifying the natural wind speed, the WindCube is able to produce more power from a smaller footprint. Proportionally, the WindCube has the smallest footprint with the largest amount of power output in the industry. Because of these attributes, the WindCube is uniquely designed to produce energy in urban, populated areas with space constraints.
Wind Energy - Energy received from the movement of the wind across the earth. This energy is a result of the heating of our oceans, earth, and atmosphere by the sun.
What causes the wind? - The wind is caused by the uneven heating of the surface of our earth by the sun. The reason for the uneven heating is due to the different surfaces of our earth (land and water).
Advantages Renewable energy ● Production of wind energy is cheap ● Permanent type of energy (as long as the sun exists) ● Reduce toxic gas emissions ●
disadvantages Contributes to noise pollution ● damaging effects on local wildlife ● visual intrusion ●
Wind turbines make bat lungs explode
COOL FACTS! - In 200 B.C., people in China and the Middle East used windmills to pump water and grind grain. - The first modern wind turbine was built in Vermont in the early 1940s. - The largest wind turbine in the world, located in Hawaii, stands 20 stories tall and has blades the length of a football field. - An average wind speed of 14 miles per hour is needed to convert wind energy into electricity. - One wind turbine can produce enough electricity to power up to 300 homes.
