Wind Power

By: Rachel Skillicorn

Wind power is when the wind is blowing and is used as power. The power is taken from a machine most people have seen before, it is a huge windmill. The windmill turns it's blade which in return spins a shaft that is connected to a generator. This produces kinetic energy which is what the generator uses to prodeuce energy. A wind power company namedSiemens who has been working at creating, building, and placing windmills for over 25 years. They have placed over 7,000 wind turbines so far. That is a lot of wind power!
