The benefits of turbine wind energy are many, allowing for renewable energy to be used for modern day needs.
Slows Use of Natural Resources
When wind energy is used, there is no need to use natural resources. Energy sources like coal, natural gas, and oil can all be left in their natural environments. Since these nonrenewable resources are finite, using wind energy or any other renewable source simply makes more sense. In a world which seems to need more and more power, having a renewable source of energy allows for greater energy production as well as sustainability.
Helps Create Energy
At its core, wind turbines and windmills help to create energy and electricity. In addition, these turbines can help to create excess energy so as to take some of the strain off of the electrical companies. This allows for energy to be available at all times, even when the traditional electricity sources. In times when one system of electricity production is not available, society can turn to wind power which is always available so long as the equipment works and the wind is still blowing.
Cost Effective Energy Source
One of the biggest arguments against wind power is that it is not cost effective. True, the use of turbines can be costly at first, but as they create energy, free energy, they will pay for themselves, often recouping their initial production costs within a few years of being used. Over time, the wind turbine will pay for itself again and again, even as it needs maintenance and repairs.
