Many may be wondering what wind energy can be used for. Utility Products recently came up with a list of innovative ways to use wind energy, which can prove to be smart for business owners.
The website said wind mills or wind turbines can be used as a supplement coal or petroleum to provide electricity. The energy that is generated by wind turbines and wind mills is stored in batteries and can provide power to houses and businesses.
Wind power can also provide enough power for a vehicle. A recent experiment in Australia used kites to harness wind energy to power a car. The car traveled 3,100 miles and only cost $15 to power, says the website.
Water pumps are another thing in which people are using wind energy in an innovative way. The website says many countries and communities have been using wind energy to pump water out of the ground, which works by powering a water pump using the power generated by a wind turbine or wind mill.
Wind power can be a solution to limited natural resources and environmentally damaging pollution.
