    Draft Wind energy is really a converted form of solar energy. (Halacy) The sun’s radiation heats different parts of the earth at different rates. It is mostly noticeable in the day, but it also is available when different surfaces, like water and land, absorb or reflect at different rates. This causes portions of the atmosphere to warm differently. After, hot air rises, and that reduces the atmospheric pressure at the earth’s surface, and cooler air is drawn in to replace it. The result is wind. (“Wind”)

    power can be destructive, but the risk of exploitation is very low and can still be used for positive energy. Wind power can also be proven to produce confident energy; however there are many negative aspects to this type of production. Wind power is most commonly produced within wind turbines. These turbines include three wings which are propelled in a circular motion when natural wind is blowing. Turbines can produce a great amount of power when the motion has reached full capacity; however, nature

    I. Introduction This paper examines the pricing effects of onshore wind power projects at Tehachapi Pass Wind Farm and San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm on residential housing values in California, specifically within Kern, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. As the United States continues to diversify its means of energy consumption, it cannot consider only renewable energy’s impacts on energy supply and costs; it must also remain cognizant of existing community concerns. These concerns can be

    Introduction and Background: Wind energy has been one of the greatest developments in the field of renewable energy in the last several years. Wind farms, based off of energy production facts, are pivotal in our society, to the continued push to reduce fossil fuel usage and greenhouse gas emissions. To the untrained eye, they seem as though they are too good to be true; a cheaper form of energy that also emits less pollution than traditional forms of energy production (find a source for this)

    Wind Farms on the Cape When I first became informed about the idea of wind turbines as a source of renewable energy and these farms off the shores of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, I Thought it was a wonderful idea. I especially felt this way after hearing the opinion of a classmate who has the turbines in her home state and said that they are so thin and slim that you can barely see them from afar. I was so interested in learning more about these wind turbines as a source of energy that I wanted

Te Uku generates enough power to annually supply 28,000 homes. The Hauāuru mā raki project was a wind farm that gained consent from production in 2010. The site was to be produced by contact energy and was expected to produce up to 504MW of energy which would have powered 170,000 homes. Unfortunately this project was withdrawn by Contact Energy due to

    investments was found on an alternative energy website. This particular article talks about the use of flying wind farms. These flying wind farms are essentially "airborne turbines spinning at high altitudes sending power down via nano-tube cable tethers to generate power." Basically there would be two turbine's attached via the nano-tube cables that would fly high in the sky like kites. The strong wind from the high altitude would allow the turbines to capture and transmit the energy down the cables. The
