Wind: The Future Of Power Sustainability
Wind power provides efficient, low-cost energy from a renewable resource. Windfarms are sprouting up all over the world and households are using small wind generators to help reduce home energy costs. Wind is the future of sustainable power.
Renewability is important when talking about energy. We can not create fossil fuels like petroleum or coal: once they have been used, they are gone.
Wind does not need to be replaced. When used, it is not exhausted. Since wind replenishes itself naturally, it does not have any renewal costs.
The biggest step in power sustainability is to find a source of power that will never run out. Wind is sustainable energy. Since it can not be depleted, so there is no way to 'run out' of wind energy. Wind power can also be stored for future use.
When wind power is fully understood and harnessed as efficiently as possible, it will continue on for future generations as a reliable energy source.
In the near future, wind energy may be mixed with other non-renewable sources of energy. This way, our fossil fuel-reliant society will slowly become independent from those non-renewable resources. Using partial wind energy is a way to become more eco-friendly and to use less fossil fuels.
A major benefit of wind power is the lack of pollution it produces. While burning fossil fuels give off carbon dioxide, wind power produces no pollution when used, created or distributed. This is important in protecting the atmosphere of the Earth.
The low cost of wind power makes it a pracical source of energy. The cost of producing wind power continues to drop; eventually, wind power will be the most cost-effective way to power a home. The costs are already comparable to those of any other energy type that is non-renewable. In the near future, wind power will likely be even more affordable due to lower production costs and possible government incentives to use green energy in the home.
