The Basics of Wind

New to wind power?  Our guide will lead you through the A-B-C’s of how wind power works.

Where’s the wind?

Wind maps make beautiful pictures.  These charts, combined with other factors like distance to roads or keeping them away from sensitive areas, make it easy to see where W.E.B. can best collect wind.  This section talks about how we choose where to place a windmill, and how to choose what to place there.

Emerging Technology

We can’t speed up the wind, but we can get better at turning it into electricity.  We keep an eye on emerging technology, and as we grow, will have money for our own research and development (instead of just using others’ work!)
