There are many ways to make energy that is less polluting, do not contribute to global warming, and which are sustainable.
These types of energy are called ‘renewable’ because they can last indefinitely. Examples of renewable energy include wind turbines and solar power!
The wind moves the turbine which is a machine which changes the energy from the movement into a steady stream of electrical energy.
Humans are beginning to use wind power more and more, and not just because wind is everywhere and free.
You can’t put a power station near every town but you might be able to place wind turbines close by. That makes it a lot easier to get the electricity into people’s homes!
Because they use less energy shoving the electricity around, there’s more for people to use.
Humans are trying to cut the pollution from fossil fuels and wind will help them get there!
