Anyone driving in the western portions of the state or along the coast,has certainly seen towering wind turbines, usually in massive wind farms. Those turbines each convert kinetic energy into usable electric power. These quintessential wind turbines are actually more specifically called horizontal axis wind turbines. But they are not only used in commercial applications, they are also available for residential purposes. If you are interested in implementing residential horizontal axis wind turbines in Texas for your home, our Fort Worth renewable energy professionals have decades of experience serving clients across the state.
The three-bladed horizontal axis wind turbines associated with wind farms are pointed into the wind through computer controls. The towers are generally 60 to 90 feet high with 60- to 130-foot blades. These massive blades turn, spinning a shaft connected to a generator to turn raw wind power into electricity.
Wind is the result of uneven heating of the earth by the sun, the irregular shape of Earth’s topography and the planet’s rotation. So, wind power is a form of solar energy. The flow of wind, which varies across the state, is also effected by bodies of water.
