Wind Farms-Power generation with the renewable resources in a pollution free method
Energy management processes are becoming more important with the increase in energy demand. So it becomes essential to plan for the alternative ways of resolving the energy crisis. The rapid increase in the world population and the depletion of the available natural resources are the major reasons for the sudden increases in the energy demands. Modern advancements in the technology and the internet have greatly helped the people in realizing the increasing energy demand all around the world. There are many methods that are widely followed by many countries in energy management. One of the most important methods would include the harvesting of the wind energy by means of wind farms. And the increasing energy demand has increased the necessity for the establishing new wind farms. And there are various organizations that are involved in establishing these wind farms. Windstream is one among such company that is involved in this line of work and the wolfe island shoals project is one among the upcoming wind farm projects.
The Wind and the electricity!
Electricity has become a very important part of our day to day activities. And the majority of the devices that we use for both personal and business processes operates only with the help of electricity.So any reduction in the electricity has a major impact on both the business and personal life of an individual. And the saddest part is that the necessity is increasing every day, which forces us to look for the alternative ways of power generation. Thus, these implementations of the wind farm are far better than any other methods because this method does not result in any pollution to the environment which is another factor that threatens the life of the people. And it is a renewable energy so it can be completely depended on for energy production.
What are wind farms? And how do they work?
Wind farms are nothing but a large number of wind turbines located in a particular location. And based on the locality these wind farms can be classified into onshore wind farms and offshore wind farms. Onshore wind farms are located within the country region, whereas the offshore wind farms are located on island locations. And the wolfe island shoals wind farm project is an upcoming project that is an example for the offshore wind farms. It has been planned to be established in the Wolfe Island that is located near the Lake Ontario in the Ontario region. And it has been designed to generate the power of about 300MW. As mentioned earlier, a large number of wind turbines that are located in the same location are collectively called as the wind farm, wind turbines consist of two or three propeller blades that are placed at a tower of height around 30 meters for efficient utilization of the wind energy. When the wind energy strikes these blades it tends to move which is connected to the rotor, and the rotor is connected to the generator by means of the main shaft, this rotation of these blades rotates the rotor which in turn spins the generator resulting in the generation of electricity in a pollution free method.
