Wind

    Our earth is encircled with bands of wind, in some areas wind energy or watts are available 20 hours per day or more.

 Man has harnessed the wind for centuries in the form of windmills, sails, and other devices that convert the kinetic motion of wind into mechanical motion.

The Dutch were very cleaver in their setup and design of windmills in the 4th century  to catch prevailing winds and to use this power to run pumps to keep the sea out of their below sea level country and to grind seeds in mills used for flower.

Due to a near constant westerly wind flow The Netherlands as the Dutch are now known, have installed many high efficiency wind turbines and are net energy exporters to the European grid. 

                                                            

Wind turbines are of two unique types, Propeller driven tower mounted, and Vertical Axis cylindrical models. Watt output is  from 100 watts to 20 Megawatt, the larger being enough power to supply 40,000 homes. Wind turbines easily lend themselves to the economies of scale, the bigger the better and the less expensive per watt generated.

 Vessels have made use of wind turbines for many decades due to their constant motion when underway and the normally windy sea ports they visit. They are typically form 100 watt to 1,000 watts, generating ample energy to supply electricity. Some use Kinetic Energy Vaults in the form of batteries to supply current when the wind is not blowing.  Electrical energy is often used to convert sea water to potable water through reverse osmosis, lessening the need to carry large quantities of water while at sea.

 

 

 Tower mounted propeller driven wind turbines supply an ever increasing watt energy in Texas driven by T. Boon Pickens. These large propeller driven turbines can generate 10 megawatts of power each, 100 of them is equal to the power of a nuclear plant. Off shore wind energy in shallow waters is one of the most economical kinetic energy to harvest. www.Capewind.org is developing a large offshore wind farm off the coast of Nantucket, the first of many offshore generating facilities.

 

In locations where large propeller driven turbines are politically objectionable, smaller cylindrical turbines can be used. These turbines can generate up to 4 kilowatts per hour of electrical energy in as little as a 8 mph wind while creating no noise and posing little threat to wildlife. Some of these turbines are small enough to mount on the roof of a house generating enough power in a day to totally supply the electrical needs of the residence 24 hrs per day when coupled with a Kinetic Energy Vault. for storage. In many areas of the world, small turbines power street lights are also used for off the grid installations.

Wake up America

Oil has been a inexpensive resource for many decades in the USA. With 90% of the easily recoverable oil found, the cost of drilling in sensitive areas of the  USA  is sky-rocketing or prohibited altogether. The political instability in oil producing areas of the world is also causing rapid increases in the cost of oil. 

 

America still has it

 It is predicted that our total green energy production will exceed 20% by 2020. This will  cut our dependency on oil by 5 million barrels per day and creating millions of jobs.

 Renewable resources are abundant in our nation,  including solar, wind, water, and wave kinetic energy. We also have the 3rd largest reserves of rare-earth minerals in the world, the kind that batteries and solar panels use! (97% of these elements now comes from China.) :(
