People have been discussing and testing renewable energy sources for many years, the problem is that many people felt that we would never run out of fossil fuels. This made the development of renewable energy sources take a back seat to other concerns. Things have now changed, the world now has to grasp the concept that we have reached our peak oil production and will soon see the end of fossil fuels. This has put the search for viable renewable energy sources in the forefront, and renewable energy wind turbines are one of the main items on the list of energy sources.Renewable energy make use of the wind in order to create electricity. As the wind turns the blades, the blades spin a turbine inside of the housing. This turbine creates the electricity, which is either added to the electrical grid or stored in storage batteries. It is the same principle as a water turbine except that the turbine is turned by the wind. Wind turbines have a great deal of potential but there are some pros and cons that need to be considered. The first benefit of the wind is that it is renewable, and in many parts of the world plentiful.
