Wind Power Increasing as an Energy Source

Oak Electric Services, Inc. prides itself on being a leader in the sales, installation and service of residential and commercial wind turbines. Here are some interesting facts about the growing use of wind power on the planet:

  • Wind power currently accounts for 1% of the earth’s power, but the number is continually rising as wind power gains ground as a profitable and effective energy source.
  • Wind power electricity production has quadrupled over the past six years, with Denmark, Germany, the United States, and Spain, leading the pack.
  • Denmark generates one fifth of its total electricity through wind power, which is the highest production rate in the world.
  • In 1999, wind power only accounted for 0.1% of the United States’ total generated electricity. Over the past nine years, attitudes towards the environment have changed so that wind power is now over 1% of the country’s total electricity.
  • The United States and European governments, businesses, and people are championing wind power, recognizing its affordability and beneficial effects on the environment.
  • Wind power does not produce air pollution while generating electricity, making it better for the environment than fossil fuels, which contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.
  • The U.S. Department of Energy has discovered that the abundance of wind flowing across the Great Plains has the ability to power the entire nation.

Installing a wind turbine at your location can help you reduce the amount of electricity used from conventional sources, reduce your carbon emissions, lower your electricity bills, and generally make the world a more beautiful place.
