Wind Power - A Look at the Real Advantages
By Dave Morrow

There are many advantages associated with wind power. Some advantages
look good only on paper and are of no use in our real life. Let us focus on only
those advantages which you, as the end user of wind power, can really enjoy
and experience.

The first and most obvious benefit of using wind power is that it is green
energy. You are giving your children a better chance of enjoying Mother Nature
in all her glory by switching to wind power. Climate change and its harmful
effects on our lives is no longer a matter of speculation. It is very real and using
windmills to meet your electricity requirements is a good gift for the future
generation. Your decision to switch to wind power may go a long way in
reducing pollution and global warming.

The second benefit that wind power offers is that it is no longer an expensive
proposition. There was a time when you had to be really rich to set up a wind
turbine big enough to light up your own home. Today, improvements in
technology have made a huge difference to cost of wind power. Setting up a
windmill has become so inexpensive that you can give it a serious shot without
even burdening your finances. Finance is available for those who do not have
sufficient cash to meet the initial costs. You can pay for your wind turbine in
installments and start saving money on your energy bills without any delays.

Thirdly, efforts have been made to combine electricity generated by windmills
with traditional sources like power plants. You do not have to choose between
green energy and other sources. You can use both sources at the same time to
ensure minimum disruption of service and inconvenience. Your connection can
be modified to give first preference to green energy. If your windmill does not
generate sufficient electricity, you can draw extra energy from your service
provider to meet the shortfall. Green energy AND traditional solutions can be
combined to strike the right balance between protection of environment and
maintenance of lifestyle.

Earlier, wind power was touted as the next big thing on the grounds that it was
absolutely free to generate. All you needed to do was pay the initial investment
to setup your wind mill and you had free electricity for life. However, wind power
is not just a money saving venture any longer. It has become an income
generating venture as well. You can strike a deal your service provider to sell
the excess electricity that you generate to bring down your energy bills. Not
only will you save money on reduction of consumption but you can actually earn
money by selling electricity to your supplier.

Finally, technological improvements have ensured that you can exploit wind
power without losing precious real estate. There is no need to exclusively allot
your land for functioning of the windmill only. You can use the land situated
right below your wind turbine without any safety concerns. Windmills are
completely safe to use. This has made wind energy viable for even those who
live in cities and suburbs.

With green energy offering these real and practical advantages, you should act
immediately and switch to windmills for your energy requirements.
