Wind can be used in combination with other renewable resources such as solar. Solutions for communities can include local and regionally based resources.

When wind gusts are good

Wind energy can generate clean electricity, does not emit greenhouse gases, and comes from a renewable, domestic source. Most of the best sites for generating electricity with wind are in rural areas, including farms and ranches.

People started using windmills centuries ago to pump water or grind grains. Today’s wind turbines are advanced windmills. One turbine can help power a farm. A group of turbines on a wind farm can power hundreds of homes and businesses.
