Blowin' In The Wind

Enviormental Impact-Birds and bats are susceptable to habitat loss and collisions.-Many other animals may lose their habitats when wind farms are built.-Some wind farms are locates in major bird migration routes.

Benefits-Wind energy relases no pollution into the water or air.-Wind farms are an excellent soucre of local jobs-Reduces America's reliance on imported fuels.

Formation/Definition-Wind is caused by air flowing from high to low pressure.-Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of power.

Byproducts- Noise-Chemicals when creating turbine.-Turbines create drag, slowing the speed of the wind.

RecomendationOur group thinks we should rely more on wind turbines for power because we wouldn't have to use non-renewable resources, allowing them to last longer.

Costs-Noise can effect human health.-Turbines are a threat to wildlife (birds/bats).-Not suited to meet the base load energy demand.

Source-We harness and convert energy into usable energy by collecting its energy in turbines.

Uses-Grinding grain-Generating electricity-Pumping water

This is a graph of the renewable energy use in Michigan as a February 2013.

This is a picture describing the parts of a wind turbine.

Connect to Michigan-We use wind power in Michigan because we have acess to it.-As of Febuary 2013, 2.4% of energy comes from wind-Michigan plans to raise 20% of energy by 2030

Type/Conversion-Wind power is originally mechanical energy and converted into electrical energy for us to use.

This is a picture of a wind turbine.

Wind Turbines are cool

Wind energy is remewable and is an external energy source.

Did You Know...-Wind turbines can be as tall as a 20 story building-Their blades can be up 200 feet long-Wind mills have been around since 2000 B.C.E
