  • OSEA: Wind
    is drawn off and transmitted as electricity Turbines come in a variety of sizes and capacities from 300 watt W mini turbines that homeowners can install themselves to utility scale turbines in the 3 to 5 megawatt MW range that can be over 120 metres tall What Can Wind Power Do We have been using the wind to generate electricity for longer than most people likely realize Some of the earliest known and important uses for wind power were for sailing to grind grains and to pump water From the 1800s to the 1930s much of rural North America was powered by wind It wasn t until after rural communities began to be connected to the main electricity grid that the demand for wind power declined There are two basic applications for modern turbines small scale personal use and large scale generation Small scale turbines provide power generally for personal or home use and are situated where the power will be used In Ontario most small scale wind turbine owners are likely to use most of the energy generated themselves with maybe only a little left over to sell back to the electricity grid under the province s net metering program Larger scale wind turbines however provide more power than can be used by a single home or group of homes Instead large scale also known as utility scale turbines sell their electricity to the Ontario power grid similar to other traditional generators Benefits of Wind Power Wind power is the fastest growing generation technology in the world and there is a huge potential for wind development in Canada particularly in the prairie regions In Ontario wind capacity grew from a mere 15 MW in 2003 to over 415 MW as of July 2007 According to the Global Wind Energy Council wind power has become an economic power employing more than 120 000 people world wide with an annual turnover of more than US 14 billion and an annual growth rate of more than 28 over the last 10 years Enough power is being produced by wind to power more than 25 million households Wind power displaces traditional polluting energy sources such as coal and gas and nuclear power thereby helping to reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions that contribute to pollution and climate change Community renewable energy projects can have a significant impact on local society and economies by generating local jobs favourable investment opportunities benefits for local businesses opportunities for education and greater capacity at the community level to bring about change One study in the United States showed that locally owned generation can produce from 25 to 150 more jobs and between 700 000 to 4 3 million more in total value added than centralized large scale developments Did You Know Since the 1990s wind power growth has exploded globally According to the Global Wind Energy Council at the end of 2006 there was 74 223 MW of installed wind power capacity worldwide Although Canada is not
