Wind power is a preferred renewable energy source, in light of non-renewable energy sources like fossil fuels and their likes disappearing fast. It is utilized for generating electricity through wind turbines. Wind power does not emit greenhouse gases or other pollutants that are harmful for the environment. As air pollution and thermal power plant cooling become national concerns, wind power seems a better energy production alternative.
