There have been some very exciting news coming out of the realm of wind energy information.
In a study conducted by Lawrance Livermore National Laboratory, the geophysical limits to global wind power were studied in detail.
The researchers found that wind energy would cause no harm to the earth or her climate.
According to the lead author of the study, Kate Marvel:
"The future of wind energy is likely to be determined by economic, political, and technical constraints rather than geophysical limits.”
In other words:
The only thing that is stopping the human species from evolving into a more ecologically literate and friendly society is money, government approval, and planning and distribution of large scale wind projects.
During the study, Marvel collaborated with Ben Kravitz and Ken Caldeira of the Carnegie Institution Department of Global Ecology.
The group found that Earth-bound wind turbines could extract kinetic energy at a rate of at least 400 terawatts, while high-altitude wind power could extract more than 1,800 terawatts.
The Current total global power demand is about only about 18 terawatts!
Can we say unused energy potential?

Turbines generate electricity by utilizing the power of the wind for homes and small businesses.
They can be big or small.
There are a number of unique designs that can be mounted on your roof.
Or, you can have a small wind tower placed on your land.
The great thing about the wind industry is that there are many different wind energy companies competing with each over your business.
This has brought about a number of innovative and creative designs to fit almost any budget and situation.
Having the right wind energy information regarding turbines will help you in making the right decisions when choosing one for your home or business.
Here is a list of basic facts about residential wind turbines:
