RENEWABLE ENERGY. WHY WE CHOOSE WIND

The wind has been used as an energy source since Antiquity, as far back with the invention of the wind mills and the sail. In the contemporary society when the need of more reliable, clean and renewable sources is one of the biggest challenges the humanity faces, the advantages of the wind cannot be left unnoticed. 

The wind as a resource is easily accessible, free of charge and also clean and unexpendable energy source. Although it is unstable as a speed and direction, the development of wind projects in suitable areas near the seaside or on the high parts of the mountains, allows using the maximum potential of this source. As it is not related to the fossil fuels supply, this energy resource is not affected by the changes in the price of the petrol and the price of the produced energy is competitive to the one produced by fossil fuel plants. 

The financial advantages are not the only plus of the wind energy. The benefits for the nature and environment are also significant. Apart from cheap, the wind energy is ecofriendly and renewable- there is no air or soil pollution, CO₂ emissions and radioactive waste. The land where wind parks are installed can be used for industrial or agricultural activities, without disturbing the ecological balance and the life of the population. 

The contemporary way of living requires more electric power. Securing it becomes one of the most important questions we are facing at the present moment. It is a challenge to find an efficient, cheap and ecological way of electricity production.

We choose the wind.
