Wind Power Energy

John asks…

Is their enough wind to power the Philippines?

the Philippines has the potential to generate 70,000 megawatt of electricity from wind power. what is the total energy consumption of the Philippines? will 70,000 megawatt be enough to supply a large percentage of electricity for all of the Philippines?
nobody read or answered the question.

Windmill Farms answers:

There is no continuous winds that have the potential to sustain a profitable wind power operation. But there is one way and that is to harness powerful winds blown out by seasonal typhoons. Unfortunately, they are very destructive and limited only during the rainy seasons. So for the rest of the year, the expensive turbines and generations would only rather be a huge liabilty. Also, dams will have more than enough water to operate hydropower plants. So in one way or another, there will be excess production that will most likely not be used so they should be stored for future demand. And storing of produced electric power is costly if not unfeasible to the Philippines.

What should I put in a wind energy Powerpoint?

I am doing a Powerpoint presentation on Wind energy. What are some good topics to include?

Windmill Farms answers:

Put advantages and disadvantages.
How often is it windy enough to use turbines? At what speed is it too much?
Show calulations about output vs length of blade ( it’s the square of the length)
Appearance compared to other power plants
Compare environmental issues with Nuclear power plants / gas-fired plants etc
Generation costs
Longevity of the turbine (30 yrs)
NIMBY’s

Richard asks…

what is the price of wind energy compared to the price of fossil fuels?

when i say price of wind energy, I’m talking about wind mills or whatever transforms wind energy into another kind of energy.
I also need comparison

Wind Mill price = $??? > or < than fossil fuels

Windmill Farms answers:

1 kWh of wind power = $0.17
1 kWh of plant powered by natural gas = $0.04

Nancy asks…

How many fossil fuels does Wisconsin use up in a day?

I am doing a science project on which is the best renewable future energy source for Wisconsin. Either solar energy, wind power, or methane gas. I need to know percentages of energy used up by the state, the number of fossil fuels being used up compared to all other states, and I need to know Wisconsin’s total sunlight and wind (mph) amount in a year. I need links to websites. So can you please help me?

Windmill Farms answers:

The EIA (U.S. Energy Information Administration) collects, analyzes, and disseminates independent and impartial energy information.
NERL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) is the facility of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for renewable energy and energy efficiency research, development and deployment.

The first link below is about Wisconsin.
There are separate sections for energy production and energy consumption.

Mandy asks…

How to apply solar and wind power for agriculture?

Please describe me how solar and wind power is utilized for farm production and animal husbandry in developing countries.

Windmill Farms answers:

Take a look online for solar or wind agricultural products, and if you live in a rural area, look around and you will see applications some old and some modern.Aeromotor wind pumps have been used for many many years to pump water in remote locations. Did you ever hear stories about the windmills in Holland? They have been used for grinding grains, as well as pumping water, and in San Fransisco Golden Gate park, the big windmills at the western edge pump water for irrigation of the park plants.Many are still working today!
Solar powered water pumping is done.
Solar powered fence chargers for electric fencing are available, as well as solar powered yard or shed lights.
Gate openers are available for use with solar power. Take a look at some of the agencies that promote alternative energy for use in developing countries and see what is out there. Electricity gets used for refrigeration, although there are solar powered refrigeration units that use no electricity, but rather a system for cycling of ammonia for cooling.
