Wind farms work by harvesting the natural energy present when the wind blows and then using it to generate replica watches renewable electricity.
Modern onshore turbines are currently up to 130m tall (to the tip of the blade at its highest point) and have three blades which face into the wind. This turns the blades, which spins a shaft connected to a generator. Electricity is the result.
Electricity is generated in all but the calmest conditions, with the turbines hitting full power once the wind reaches around 30mph. For safety reasons, they will start shutting down when wind speeds approach 50mph, equivalent to replica rolex a force 9 gale.
Turbines will generate throughout the year, with output higher in the winter months when both the wind and consumer demand are stronger.
Typically, the power from the turbines is taken by underground cables to an onsite substation, where the electricity is pooled and has its voltage boosted ready for transmission into the local electricity distribution network.
Because of their height, turbines can have a significant visual impact and also need to be carefully sited to replica watches uk minimise any possible impact on wildlife, which means projects can carry significant planning risks. However their small footprint means they are suited to all types of agricultural land as farming is largely unaffected by their presence.
Furthermore, output can be significant. A single onshore turbine can produce enough power to meet the needs of some 1,250 homes.
