Conventional electric power plants have proven it time and again that they provide more economical energy compared to the wind turbines. Due to the irregularity in the pattern of wind flow, energy output from wind turbines is fluctuating in nature. Due to these fluctuations, there may be disruption in the electric grid that can be avoided only by making certain grid modifications. No doubt, these modifications are quite costly and so accordingly the generated electricity becomes expensive as well. It further leads to rise in electricity bills which is a heavy burden for the consumers.
When the whole picture about the efficiency of wind turbines is quite clear, we never know why the government policies are still in favor of promoting wind turbines. Every year, the US DOE amazingly spends several millions of dollars on the research & development of these wind turbines. Is such heavy expenditure on wind turbines justified when DOE itself reports that wind farms are going through 20-30% decrease in energy generating efficiency ?
"Renewable Energy: A Common Sense Energy Plan" is an alternative energy book written by Brad Linscott. In this book, you will find a nice, balanced assessment of the energy generated by wind turbines. After reading this solar energy book, you will come to know various aspects related to renewable energy and the effects of its large scale implementation. If you want to get a copy of this book, all you need to do is to go online and purchase it from Amazon or Tate Publishers.
