How Wind Turbines Work. If you’ve taken a road trip through California or Texas, you’ve almost certainly seen wind turbines. Wind turbines are large, magnificent tools that help power our world – but are also mysterious as well. They sometimes look like something from another planet – like if the movie The Matrix was starting on our planet Earth. Good news, though, they aren’t – wind turbines are amazing tools to generate electricity, and are magnificently designed as well.
The Save On Energy team created the below infographic for your enjoyment, which makes the more complex science of wind power a little more accessible. Next time you’re on a road trip, quote the statistics about how turbines work, there being 48,000+ wind turbines, or that these amazing contraptions are sometimes 300+ feet tall. You’ll be the smartest person they talk to that day!
