...Energy plays a central role in development. Wind energy is a natural renewable form of energy harnessed to other forms such as electric energy and potential energy. Harnessing of energy is expensive; strict scrutiny needs to establish the cost benefit range. In a small town of Kaplanville of 25,000 people in the US, with the mayor as an instructor, decision to produce wind energy would depend on many factors such as the strength of wing and frequency of the wind. Several advantages are associated with wind energy. To start with, wind energy is a renewable source of energy, therefore the cost of replenishment is not incurred; furthermore, it is naturally occurring with its movement being... Task...

...Energy As the world is beginning to realize the problems of global warming due to pollutions and also the problem of fossil fuel shortages, there has been a growing attention and developing trend for alternative, renewable and more ecologically safer forms of energy source production. The use of wind power is one of the handful alternative options for an alternative energy production. This energy is produced when turbines change the kinetic power of winds into electrical currents. Then a gearbox turns the slow rotor into faster moving gears, which transfer mechanical forces to electricity. Jacobson (2008) even stated that “some late-technology turbines... are gearless.

Renewable energy refers to continuous and natural energy sources such as rain, wind, sunlight, and geothermal energy. Renewable energy sources are used for the generation of electricity and for some other industrial purposes.
