Why Wind Energy -– American Wind Energy Association ("Class Projects") SOTFW-SC

Why wind energy?

Wind is abundant. Scientists estimate that U.S. wind resources can supply more than three times our total electricity needs.

Wind is domestic. Unlike oil and, increasingly, natural gas, wind energy does not need to be imported, and helps to reduce our dependence on foreign countries.

Wind is inexhaustible. Unlike fossil fuels or uranium, wind energy is renewable and can be used without reducing the birthright of future generations.

Wind is clean. While displacing greenhouse gas emissions, using wind also avoids other harmful fossil fuel pollutants such as mercury, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides, making our air and water cleaner and healthier.
