Wind Turbines

The tallest wind tower in America — 345 feet — is in Scurry County,
Texas at Enel North Americas Snyder Wind Project. By comparison, the
Statue of Liberty is 305 feet.

The tips of a 300 foot diameter wing spread are moving at about 100 mph.
The blades revolve about 21 times per minute.

Who taps the wind?

Germany leads all nations in production of wind power. It also has a huge
investment in solar power. Both technologies are heavily boosted by tax

Below are the World Wind Energy Association’s rankings of wind power by
megawatts installed:

Germany 22,247
United States 16,819
-Texas 4,356
– California 2,439
Spain 15,145
India 7,850
China 5,899

Wind through the home:

All homes need adequate ventilation. Without it, contaminants such as
formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), unpleasant orders can
linger, radon gas can accumulate, and excess moisture will cause mold

In the past most homes got adequate ventilation from the natural air moving
through the unsealed windows and doors, etc. But with improved housing
technology, uncontrolled ventilation has been drastically reduced to such
an airtight degree that it’s necessary to compensate by installing a whole
house ventilation system. You may remember attic fans, same thing, just
new and improved.

Most applicable in cold climates during the summer. Not advisable in warmer
climates with humid summers because the fan can draw moist air into wall
cavities, where it may condense and cause moisture damage. However, even
in those locations, they can be run in the fall and early spring.

Whole house ventilation systems creates healthy home enviroments and are
extremely energy effiecient especially compared to air conditioning.

    I love your blog and it is my dream to get into the alternatives energy sector. I will donate next month too as I am working hard to bring some moola in. I hope together we can achieve a goal for a better tomorrow. I love your template by the way.

    Linda! Linda! Linda!

    Good morning! I have put some of my construction on cruise control for a little while, so I’m out and about the neighborhood seeing what trouble I can stir up. 🙂

    I like your wind info. As I’ve said before, this one seems like a winner to me, although I do keep hearing that the harnessing of the wind is relatively expensive. I’m not just sure I understand that.

    At any rate, it seems like a good source to capture since it’s there for the taking.

    Take care. I hope all’s well!

    HI YA Brad!!! … Glad to see ya in the neighborhood. Stir up as much as you want! I have seen where you can make one for $200.00 and it will work just as good. These are new technology. 🙂

    Hi Linda,

    I love how you educate us on alternative energy. The wind towers always fascinate me. I just can’t believe no one ever thought of this technology sooner than they did. Can you imagine how much wind has been “wasted”?

    Hi Linda,
    Great post… Wind could likely be the future of America, if our government would get off of the oil bandwagon. As Americans, we need to put politics aside and INSIST that whoever is elected DO something in the area of alternative energy sources!

    Hi Barbara … Is it not amazing that folks are looking at it now? 🙂
